Rochioli Russian River Pinot Noir W&s 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 92 A fragrant, delicate style, with pretty plum, black cherry and wild berry scents that are both rich and elegant. This is sharply focused and displays excellent balance, with a long, persistent finish that reveals extra measures of depth. Drink now through 2012. Wine Tasting Notes 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.

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

Wine & Spirits ReviewRated 94There's a complex, dynamic wine at the core of this pinot, needing plenty of air or several years of bottle age to show itself. Over the course of several days, the wine transforms from taut red raspberry and some funky reduction toward lovely, expressive depths of flavor. It has the ping of perfectly ripe black-cherry skin, built on that sweet tannin to last five to eight years in the cellar.
