Food Pairings for Rochioli Pinot Noir Russian River
This is Rochioli's estate Pinot - without a vineyard designation. It's a fabulous wine, showing the winery's signature power, complexity and balance. The flavors are rich, with notes of red berries, persimmons, red currants, bacon and cola. Absolutely delicious now, and it should gain traction and change interestingly over 6-8 years.<br/><br/>The 2010 Pinot Noir Estate is a huge wine bursting with dark cherries, menthol, licorice and tar. It is an especially large-scaled entry-level Pinot that combines massive richness in its fruit with fabulous acidity and structure. In short, this is magnificent wine, but it is big, and should not be bought by the timid. Readers who can't source the vineyard designates in 2010 will find plenty of pleasure here. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.<br/><br/>Deep red. Black cherry jam nose intermixed with earth, smoke, violets and vanilla. Full bodied, long and silky with flavors of black cherry and vanilla. The balance is from our many different vineyard sites, including the new planting of West Block. The wine possesses the typical Rochioli character and the classic Russian River Valley charm. Aged in French oak for 15 months, it displays a full body and silky texture finish with a firm and balanced structure.
