2010 Rochioli "Sweetwater Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1129869 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2010 Pinot Noir Sweetwater is a large-scaled, dramatic wine. It boasts huge black fruit and notable intensity from start to finish. Sweet, perfumed aromatics develop in the glass, but the Sweetwater remains tannic and in need of at least another 1-2 years in bottle. The wine literally sizzles on the palate with energy, and my impression is it will be magnificent with time. The clones in this parcel are Dijon, 777 and Rochioli. (AG)  (2/2012)

 Forward, flashy deliciousness is the signature of this wine, which comes from Rochioli’s youngest vineyard that was developed in the late 1990s. With pure, unobstructed raspberry and cherry flavors, it’s balanced by fine acidity and gentle tannins.  (8/2012)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright ruby-red. Aromas of redcurrant, strawberry and blood orange are complemented by subtle cola and anise accents. Shows deep, sappy red fruit and floral character on the palate, with high-pitched spice and rose notes adding energy. Closes spicy and very long, with resonating white pepper and star anise qualities. (ST)  (5/2012)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Offers a savory, herbal underbrush side to the ripe plum and wild berry flavors, firming midpalate and ending with tighter tannins. Drink now through 2022. (JL)  (9/2012)
