Tasting Notes
Immediate salivation occurs as aromas of sour cherry, hibiscus and satsuma emerge, followed by savory hints of curry leaf, rose bud and sandalwood. Don’t let the garnet red color fool you; this wine is absolutely packed with concentrated flavors of ripe, juicy Bing cherry, black raspberry, blood orange, Assam black tea and tangy tamarind fresh from the pod. Succulent acidity and palate-coating tannins lend an intensity that continues from the first sip through to the persistent, velvety, penetrating finish. A stunning expression from an iconic vineyard.
Vineyard Notes
The grapes for this outstanding Pinot Noir come from the historic Allen Vineyard, located on the opposite side of Westside Road from Rochioli. 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.
