2018 Rochioli-Allen Vineyards Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
Pomegranate, fresh cranberry, and dried strawberries mingle gracefully with subtle hints of jasmine and perfume. Tangerine peel and notes of fresh peppermint work in concert with an array of earthy green tea, wild mushrooms, and forest floor. Fresh and bright upon entry, the mouthfeel is texturally elegant, silky, and persistent from the mid-palate throughout the finish.
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 were 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 entirely of Pommard Selection from the Allen Old (planted 1974) and New (planted 1996) North Hill blocks.
