2009 Rochioli "River Block" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1081283 95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Amazing, pure, ripe and complex, with vivid, snappy, dense and tightly wound blackberry and wild berry flavors. This is full-bodied, and slow to expand on the finish, but gains as it does. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2011)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Pinot Noir River Block comes across as rich, frank and straightforward. An initial burst of fruit is followed by subtler notes that develop in the glass. Rose petals, hard candy and white flowers make an appearance with time, but the 2009 really needs another few years to blossom. Right now, the future looks very bright. The River Block is one of the 2009 Pinots that is far more interesting than its 2010 counterpart at this stage. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2012)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby. Highly expressive aromas of red berry preserves, potpourri, woodsmoke and minerals. Broad and fleshy on entry, gaining vivacity with air and offering intense strawberry and cherry flavors and a deeper note of licorice pastille. The floral quality returns strongly on the finish, which is spicy, precise and extremely persistent. This wine's flamboyant character makes it approachable now, but it will be better with at least another five years in the cellar. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2011)
