Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

The stunning 2000 Pinot Noir River Block Vineyard (200 cases) is reminiscent of a grand cru from Burgundy's Cote de Nuits. Aromas of flowers, black cherry liqueur, raspberries, plums, and a touch of blackberries jump from the glass of this dense, deep ruby/purple-colored Pinot. Like all the 2000s, it possesses vibrant acidity, outstanding purity, a layered texture, and a firm but persuasive, fruity finish.

Dark red. Aromas of bitter cherry, superripe strawberry, cola, gunflint and smoked meat. Sweet, supple and intensely flavored, with very ripe red fruit flavors and plenty of extract. A lightly minty nuance contributes to the wine's brightness. A fairly large-scaled, classic California pinot, finishing with strong berry and oak flavors.

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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
