2014 Rochioli-Allen Vineyards Pinot Noir
2014 Rochioli-Allen Vineyards Pinot Noir
Russian River Valley
VINEYARD: The grapes for this outstanding Pinot Noir come from two vineyards in the heart of Russian River Valley: the renowned Rochioli Vineyard and Allen Vineyard on the opposite side of Westside Road. Both sites are farmed by the Rochioli family. Each clone and field selection was chosen to take advantage of specific soil type, elevation and exposure to the sun, generating wines that are vibrant and powerful, yet delicate and balanced. Some of the oldest vines have been nurtured by three generations of the Rochioli family. This blend is composed predominantly of Pommard Selection from the Allen Old (planted 1974) and New (planted 1996) North Hill blocks, and the balance is Pommard from the Rochioli River Block.
 
TASTING NOTES: The Allen Vineyard grapes consistently present alluring qualities of earthiness and spice, and 2014 was no exception. Savory aromas of anise and clove permeate the glass while notes of dried figs, dates, and cherries provide balance. Exceptionally bright and fresh upon entry, the palate is supported by subtle flavors of cedar and cola. Silky tannins from carefully selected French oak barrels and post-fermentation maceration lend elegant structure to this beautiful wine, and will enable it to age gracefully for many years to come.
