Vinous 91 points (May 2014)
Bright red. Vibrant redcurrant and raspberry scents, with a seductive overlay of candied rose and peppery spices. Focused and taut but sweet, with sappy red berry flavors and a lively mineral quality that adds lift and cut. Closes silky, seamless and long, with a strong echo of red fruit and no obvious tannins.

Wine Advocate 89 points (Dec 2013)
The 2012 Pinot Noir Estate, which is already in bottle, comes primarily from the West Block and includes Dijon clones 115, 777 and the old California clone used in both California and Oregon, the Pommard clone. This wine exhibits a deep color, lots of pomegranate, black raspberry and black cherry fruit, a rich, concentrated mouthfeel, and hints of cranberries, cherries and spice. It is one of the finest Estate Pinot Noirs I have tasted from Rochioli, and should age nicely for a decade.

Wine maker notes
This Estate Pinot Noir is a blend of our many different vineyard sites, with the majority from the Sweetwater Vineyard. The balance is from our many different vineyard blocks. The wine possesses typical Rochioli characater and classic Russian River Valley charm with black cherry and spice aromas. Aged in French oak for 15 months, this wine displays a full body and silky texture finish, with a firm and balanced structure.
