  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    Bright ruby. Pure, vibrant aromas of strawberry, raspberry and Asian spices, with a sexy floral overtone. Juicy, silky and suave, with excellent lift and clarity to its red berry and floral pastille flavors. A sweet, precise pinot in a distinctly elegant style, gaining flesh and heft with aeration. Finishes spicy and very long, with the floral note repeating.

    The 2009 Pinot Noir Three Corner presents an intriguing combination of sumptuous fruit and a nuanced, totally finessed personality. Dark red cherries, mint and freshly cut flowers are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. There is plenty of acidity to give the wine a distinct element of freshness and acidity. A huge, explosive finish rounds out this compelling Pinot.

    Tightly wound, with firm blackberry and boysenberry flavors that are crisp, zesty and full-bodied, enlivened by tangy acidity and ending with a long, mouthwatering finish that shows a forest floor edge.

  • 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.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
