2019 ROCHIOLI ESTATE RUSSIAN RIVER PINOT NOIR

The Rochioli’s understood the potential of their land from very early on, deciding to put their family’s name on their product, selling their first estate-bottled Pinot Noir in 1985. The wine was immediately honored as the Best Pinot Noir in America by Wine Spectator and is one of the few wineries in California to have consistently scored above 90 points since that first vintage.

Tom believes that if America were to adopt a Grand Cru system similar to Burgundy’s, his vineyard would fall into the same prestigious status because of the several different soil types and varying elevation levels. He ferments each block separately, capturing every aspect of what defines Russian River Valley Pinot Noir in an expression that is pure Rochioli.

2018 CASTALIA ROCHIOLI VINEYARD PINOT NOIR

Rochioli Vineyard produces unforgettably distinct, powerful fruit that’s both riveting and enchanting. Few people know the vineyard as intimately as Terry Bering, Cellar Master of J. Rochioli Vineyards since 1990. Terry started Castalia Wines in 1992, producing a tiny bit of Pinot Noir from grapes he purchased from a hillside block of Rochioli Vineyard, known for small yields of intensely concentrated fruit.

This supreme example of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir accentuates the region’s vibrant cherry essence in a rich, sultry style, delineating the site’s most distinct qualities with impressive depth, keen focus, great length, and powerful concentration.

2017 MIURA ROCHIOLI VINEYARD PINOT NOIR

Master Sommelier Emmanuel Kemiji’s purpose for Miura is to produce Pinot Noir from vineyards representing California’s finest. His Crown Jewell, Rochioli Vineyard, resulted from decade-long perseverance. One of California’s “Grand Cru” equivalent sites, Rochioli is one of North America’s most distinguished vineyards. This wine encapsulates the site’s full capability, presented with superior intensity, linear focus, and powerful concentration.

Emmanuel enlisted talented Pinot Noir specialist Byron Kosuge to help achieve his goals. Byron spent his first 15 vintages immersed in Pinot Noir at Saintsbury Winery in Carneros, where he meticulously studied the varietal.

Byron and Emmanuel’s styles are aligned, crafting balanced Pinot Noirs naturally, allowing the vineyard’s personality the driving seat. Their 2017 shows off the vineyard’s best hallmarks with penetrating cherry fruit, crushed flowers, unyielding depth, and brilliant definition.
