2002 J. Rochioli East Block Russian River Pinot Noir

$90, 150 cases. Joe Rochioli‚Äôs original East Block plantings of four acres date to 1968 and were propagated from a selection that Rochioli obtained from the old Karl Wente Vineyard in Livermore. The winemaker is Tom Rochioli. · Many tasters really fawned over this wine. The nose and flavors tend toward the earthy, mushroom, wet leaf profile with plenty of dark black cherries. A very concentrated and rich style. No website! Reviewed October 15, 2006
