Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

The 2009 Pinot Noir West Block is an exotic wine bursting with dark red cherries, kirsch, hard candy, flowers, licorice and spices. There is plenty of energy, tension and supporting structure to balance some of the wine's more overt, explosive leanings. The finesse of the 2009 vintage comes across nicely on the polished finish.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

Deep ruby. The most powerful of this vintage's pinots, displaying deeply pitched scents of black raspberry, cherry-cola and violet, plus a hint of anise. Then rich but lively on the palate, offering sweet red and dark berry preserve flavors and exotic floral and gingerbread nuances. Lush and creamy on the extremely long finish, which features suave spice and red berry notes.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Pure, tight and focused on vivid flavors of wild berry, blackberry and mineral, joined by a touch of cedar. This is full-bodied and gaining velocity, returning to the pure berry theme on the finish.

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.
