2017 J. Rochioli Vineyards & Winery Little Hill Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $86. · Moderately deep garnet color in the glass. Reserved aromas of black cherry and underbrush upon opening. The nose comes alive the following day when sampled from a previously opened bottle with soaring aromas of Bing cherry and cola. Mid weight plus in sap, offering a hedonistic flow of black cherry and cola flavors that are expansive in the mouth. Very fine-grain tannins are balanced with a good acid backbone and there is a noticeably long finish. More suave and revealing when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle showing outstanding harmony. Three to five years in the cellar will bring out the best in this beauty. Score: 96. Reviewed May 3, 2020
