One of the most stupendous Russian River Pinots I have ever tasted there are just over 400 cases of this amazing wine. A ruby/purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary nose of forest floor spring flowers blackberries and sweet cherries. A steely structure gives way to a wine of superb depth richness dimensions length and purity. There are 400 cases of this astounding effort which was aged in 75% new French oak. Kudos to Tom Rochioli one of the wine worldb_Ts great guys who without any fanfare continues to turn out world-class wines of extraordinary aromatic and flavor dimensions.

The 2005 Pinot Noir Estate offers delicious raspberry and black cherry fruit along with a hint of flowers, and crisp underlying acidity to buttress the beautiful texture and rich, heady mouthfeel. There are 4,000 cases of this cuvee, which was aged in one-third new Francois Freres barrels. Tom Rochioli told me considerable crop-thinning had to be done in 2005 to keep the Pinot Noir yields manageable. A blend of Dijon Clones 115 and 777 in addition to some of the old Pommard Clone, this stunning effort is the finest regular Pinot Noir Rochioli has yet produced. Drink it over the next 7-10 years. Kudos to Tom Rochioli, one of the wine world s great guys who, without any fanfare, continues to turn out world-class wines of extraordinary aromatic and flavor dimensions

There are 500 cases of the 2005 Pinot Noir Little Hill Vineyard. Reminiscent of a Russian River version of a top-notch Richebourg, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue along with scents of roasted meats, kirsch liqueur, blackberries, spring flowers, and spice. About 50% new French oak is used, but it is completely absorbed by the wine s wealth of fruit and texture. Kudos to Tom Rochioli, one of the wine world s great guys who, without any fanfare, continues to turn out world-class wines of extraordinary aromatic and flavor dimensions. Pure and full-bodied with supple tannin as well as terrific acidity, this stunning Pinot is only exceeded by its sibling, the 2005 Pinot Noir West Block.
