2017 Rochioli-Allen Vineyards Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
Tart red cherry, tangerine zest and rose petal aromas lead off the aromatic profile, followed by savory notes of dried bay leaves, graphite and fennel. Tart, zesty flavors of freshly picked raspberries, blood orange, pomegranate seed and cocktail bitters comingle beautifully on the palate. This is a polished, refined wine for those who truly appreciate the subtleties of great Pinot Noir. The texture is velvety, with mouth-coating, fine-grained tannins; the finish is long and tangy with vibrant acidity and zesty exotic spices.
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.
