This is the most forward and varietally representative of the winery’s current Sonoma releases. It’s a Russian River Valley classic, showing ripe cherry, cola, rhubarb and coffee flavors, with a mealy chewiness. The texture is silky, the acidity fine. It’s big and bone dry, and should benefit from a few years in the cellar.
Aromas of flowers, strawberries, black cherries, and rose petals waft from the glass of the medium dark ruby-hued 2003 Pinot Noir Rochioli River Block Vineyard. While it boasts noble grand cru-like aromatics (flowers, raspberries, cherries, and crushed rocks), the wine is reserved in the mouth, suggesting 1-2 years of bottle age will be beneficial. (RP)
Good medium-deep red. Spicy, high-toned aromas of plum and earth. Full, broad and dry, with slightly edgy flavors of spices, humus and tobacco. Not especially sweet or fruit-driven. Finishes with substantial oakiness and slightly drying tannins. (ST)
