The 2002 Pinot Noir West Block Vineyard is a powerful, broad effort from a vineyard planted by Joe Rochioli in 1970. Sweet smoky, black cherry, raspberry, and blackberry aromas soar from the glass. Notions of forest floor, Asian spice, and smoked game also make an appearance in this big, rich, but impeccably well-balanced, opulent Pinot. (RP)
An expressive nose of violets and ripe black cherry introduces complex, elegant and sweet medium full flavors that coat the palate with ample dry extract, culminating in a sappy, persistent and generous finish underpinned by firm and ripe tannins. This is clearly a ripe effort yet the finish displays only the barest trace of warmth. Lovely stuff and recommended.
Deep red; less bright than the Little Hill. Aromas of cherry, root beer, mocha and oak, with a floral overlay. Fat, sweet and fruit-driven, with flavors of raspberry, black cherry, sassafras and spices. Thicker than the Little Hill bottling but more loose-knit, without quite the same mid-palate energy. Finishes with firm, slightly drying tannins and very good length. (ST)
Generous ripe plum and black cherry fruit flavors are intense and concentrated. This is developing a nice bottle bouquet, with hints of anise and sage. Ends with a drying yet complex aftertaste. (JL)
