Rochioli Pinot Noir Russian River Valley West Block 2014

External Review:

It is difficult to say the dark ruby/purple-tinged 2008 Pinot Noir West Block is superior but it offers beautiful blueberry raspberry and kirsch-like fruit full-bodied power sweet ripeness and density and a lavish extroverted style. The wine is creamy and expansive with silky tannins as well as wonderful depth. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

With three generations of dedication to the land, Rochioli Vineyards and Winery has earned the reputation as one of Sonoma County's finest wineries. This family legacy began in 1938, when Joe Rochioli Sr. purchased land he had long farmed. He had the foresight to know that the soil of the Russian River Valley would one day produce some of the world's greatest wines. His son Joe Jr. embraced this vision and today craft renowned, terrior-driven wines built on a foundation of superb fruit. The result has been a decades-long tradition of outstanding vintages: Silky-smooth, fruit-forward Pinot Noirs; rich, opulent Chardonnays; and tangy, food-friendly Sauvignon Blancs. Always in demand, always revered and always rated among the best varietals to be sought anywhere in the world. This commitment to quality is unwavering and our promise to everyone who uncorks a bottle of our wine. Read less
