2008 Rochioli Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1057832 90-92 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2010)

Outer quote mark 2008 Russian River Valley Estate Grown Pinot Noir From the Rochioli family's famed estate vineyard at a bend in the Russian River, this is stemmy and youthfully tight. It's a study in contrast: the color is transparent, the aroma black, as if you can smell the substantial extract in the wine. The texture is supple and juicy, with a bright spike in the finish. No flavor detail has emerged yet, just a black and smoky impression that lasts. Roast eggplant stuffed with veal may bring out the wine's complexity. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

90 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium red. Fresh red berries and flowers on the nose, with spice and smoky notes emerging with air. Deep in red fruit flavor but light on its feet, offering zesty strawberry and cherry flavors and a touch of cola. The smoky note returns on the long, gently sweet finish. This is drinking well now. Inner quote mark (6/2010)
