International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 132

($42) Light red. Vibrant strawberry and raspberry on the nose, with an earthy rhubarb accent. Fine-grained and silky, with bright red berry flavors, good depth and a refreshing mineral quality on the finish. The suave texture and sweet red fruits reminded me of Volnay, as did the lush, harmonious tannins.

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.

Shows aromas of floral, cherry, wild berry and raspberry fruit. Compact and delicate on the palate, ending with an earthen floor and mushroom note that adds complexity.

Drank this at the perfect time. Nice cherry and rhubarb fruit with very light tannins. Very light in color, but medium bodied.
