2014 J. Rochioli Vineyards & Winery West Block Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 228 cases, $110. Yield 1.3 tons per acre. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. The nose unravels slowly to reveal aromas of black cherry and Asian spices. Full-bodied in a richly endowed style, with a core of black cherry, blackberry and cola flavors. Plush on the palate with enough acidity to cut the richness. Impressive harmony, with an extremely long and generous finish. Much more giving, even transcendent, when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Score: 97.
