The 2011 Pinot Noir 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.

"The 2011 Pinot Noir Estate is fleshy, seductive and quite pretty. Freshly cut flowers, dark red cherries, mint and anise are nicely balanced. A vinous, inviting Pinot, the 2011 is best suited for drinking over the next few years. There is a tremendous amount of early appeal here."
