    The 2012 Pinot Noir Sweetwater is a deep ruby/purple-colored, flamboyant red displaying lots of boysenberry, black cherry and raspberry fruit. Full-bodied and rich with the wood pushed to the background, it possesses an opulent mouthfeel as well as a finish that lasts 40 seconds. Consume it over the next decade.

    Dark red. Black raspberry, cherry, rose pastille and licorice on the smoky nose. Powerful dark fruit flavors are lifted by tangy acidity, showing very good depth and focus. Rich, silky and vibrant, with a core of minerality giving the wine an impression of elegance. Finishes sweet, smoky and long, with smooth tannins lending shape to the opulent, clinging berry flavors.

  • 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.
