ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: 90-92 Points! The delicious 2008 Pinot Noir Estate (just under 4,000 cases produced) is one of the finest generic Pinots one can find from Russian River. It exhibits sweet pomegranate, raspberry, cherry, roasted herb notes along with a hint of smoky oak in its seductive, round, opulent personality. It should drink well for 7-8 years. This is another beautiful portfolio of wines from Tom Rochioli. Since they all possess a similar style, one can quibble over just how much difference there is between all the different cuvees of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. However, there are subtle differences that I will do my best to articulate. With respect to his Pinot Noirs, Rochioli completely destems his grapes, does a cold soak for 4-5 days, and keeps the wines in 100% Francois Freres French cooperage for 14-16 months or less. The wines are racked directly from barrel to tank, and are bottled without fining or filtration.
The grapes for the 2008 Estate Pinot Noir were selected from our many different vineyard sites. The blend is seventy-two percent from the Sweetwater Vineyard and twenty-eight percent from different sites on our property. The wine possesses the typical Rochioli character and classic Russian River Valley charm. Aged in French oak for 15 months, it displays a full body and silky texture finish with a firm and balanced structure.
