2015 Rochioli-Allen Vineyards Pinot Noir

Appellation
Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
The 2015 Pinot Noirs in general are super aromatic and this Rochioli-Allen blend is a great example, exuding aromas of cranberry, rose petal, dried sage, rhubarb and star anise. Copious quantities of juicy red berry flavors envelope the palate hinting at raspberry, red cassis and strawberry, with just a touch of coriander leaf on the back end. The mid-palate is perfectly tart and mouthwatering, while the finish is savory with a powerful backbone of firm tannins.
Vineyard Notes
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 Vineyard.
