2007 Gary Farrell Rochioli Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., pH 3.43, 519 cases, $65. Released November 1, 2009. Sourced from a 13-acre block of Rochioli Vineyard that border the Russian River planted in 1995 and taken from cuttings of the original “mother” West Block planted in 1969. Pommard clone. · A stunning wine that hits all the high notes. Enticing and intensely perfumed nose of black cherries, spice and loamy earth. Delicious core of berry and currant flavors with a spectacular cherry-driven aromatic finish that lingers for what seems like a minute. Beautifully composed, with tannins, fruit and acidity singing in harmony along with a velvety mouth feel. Class in the glass. Reviewed July 15, 2010
