Issue: Issue 78
Fresh cherry-red. Enticing aromas of strawberry, sandalwood and graphite. Juicy, bright red fruit and spice flavors offer good delineation and balance for this hot vintage. Supple but by no means too sweet. Nicely integrated acids and tannins. Not at all forced or overextracted.

Rochioli's Pinot Noirs are at the top of the qualitative pyramid for this varietal in California, competing favorably with the Pinot Noirs made by Marcassin, Martinelli, and Kistler. The 1996 Pinot Noir Estate exhibits a sweet, smoky, black plum and cherry-scented nose, medium body, excellent ripeness and purity of fruit, enough acidity for definition, and a moderately long, easy-going finish with toasty new oak notes.
