Background

With three generations of dedication to the land, Rochioli Vineyards and Winery has earned the reputation as one of Sonoma County's finest wineries. This family legacy began in 1938, when Joe Rochioli Sr. purchased land he had long farmed. He had the foresight to know that the soil of the Russian River Valley would one day produce some of the world's greatest wines. His son Joe Jr. embraced this vision and today craft renowned, terrior-driven wines built on a foundation of superb fruit.

The result has been a decades-long tradition of outstanding vintages: Silky-smooth, fruit-forward Pinot Noirs; rich, opulent Chardonnays; and tangy, food-friendly Sauvignon Blancs. Always in demand, always revered and always rated among the best varietals to be sought anywhere in the world. This commitment to quality is unwavering and our promise to everyone who uncorks a bottle of our wine.


Tasting Notes

This Estate is a blend of our many different vineyard sites, with thirty percent from Sweetwater, twenty-one percent Little Hill, eighteen percent Big Hill, nine percent from West Block and the balance for various blocks on our Estate. This full bodied wine possesses the typical Rochioli character and the Classic Russian River Valley charm. Aged in French oak for 15 months and displays a full body and silky texture finish with a firm and balanced structure.

Reviews

90 points, Robert M. Parker Jr. (Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate):
"The 2014 Pinot Noir Estate offers loads of black cherry and strawberry fruit, some underbrush and forest floor notes. It is medium to full-bodied, deep, surprisingly dark in color and quite long. This is outstanding and a real sleeper selection to drink over the next decade or more.Quiet and assured, Tom Rochioli continues to produce spectacular wines from the family’s 100 acres of vineyards in the heart of the Russian River Valley on both sides of Westside Road south of Healdsburg. The two most commonly encountered cuvées are the Russian River Estate Chardonnay and Russian River Estate Pinot Noir. The single vineyard Chardonnays all represent different blocks and clonal material from Rochioli’s estate vineyards. He has been making these wines since 1993. They are essentially bottled without fining or filtration, and virtually all of them are sold to members on the mailing list, so for the most part, they never make it into the general commercial marketplace. The estate Pinot Noir sees about 50% new oak and is one of the bigger production cuvées in the Rochioli portfolio of nearly 3,200 cases. His Pinot Noirs usually see 4-5 days of pre-fermentation cold maceration, and are made from relatively small yields of tiny berries, hence they have great color and wonderful fruit. They are certainly among my favorite Pinot Noirs from the Russian River Valley."
