Rochioli 2005 East Block Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $90
From the first Pinot block on the estate (1968), and from an unknown clone sourced from a long-forgotten Napa vineyard. The block is now being replanted. This is the Pinot that established Rochioli’s reputation, and the bottling remains a superstar. The ’05 is very dry, crisp and full-bodied, with a flood of cherry-pie filling, pomegranate, rhubarb, Beefsteak…  — S.H.  (7/1/2007)

Rochioli 2003 East Block Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $90
Lots of oak, vanilla and char aromas, mingled with cherry jam, cocoa and dusty spices. Very rich in cherries, oak and spices. Dry with firm, dusty tannins. Finishes long, rich and spicy. Full-bodied. Young, sappy, needs time. Best 2007 and beyond.  — S.H.  (6/1/2005)

14.2%. Pretty. Char-toast, allspice, 5 spice, cola, tea, cocoa, dried cherry skin, pepper. In the mouth, a blast of sweet oak and cherry, but very dry. Rich, full-bodied, dry, sour cherry. Intricate. Fairly tannic. Sweet, cocoa-ey finish. Now - 2010.  — S.H.  (6/1/2005)

Very dry. Fairly tannic. Tea, cola, cherry flavors. Has a heaviness and lack of subtlety. Drink now.  — S.H.  (6/1/2005)
