($85) Ruby-red. Ripe red and dark berry aromas are complicated by cracked pepper, bitter chocolate and fresh rose. Round and sappy, offering juicy raspberry and blackcurrant flavors, with silky tannins contributing shape and grip. Gains sweetness on the long, spicy, raspberry-suffused finish. The fruit here is wonderfully pure and energetic, and I couldn't find any rough edges.

About This Producer


With three generations of dedication to the land, Rochioli Vineyards and Winery has earned the reputation as one of Sonoma County's finest. 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.
