The Rochioli Riverblock is situated on the bank of the Russian River where the soil is deep and loamy with river gravel scattered throughout. These are ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noirs. The depth of the soil allows for the plants to ripen slowly and develop incredible flavour. Always intriguing on the nose, the dark red and black fruit aromas mix with dried herbs and hints of fennel. Soil-rich tones add a bass note to the incredibly complex nose. Deeply pitched fruit flavors in the mouth are layered with extremely refined tannin. The seamless acidity allows the tannin to shine and offers an unctuous texture without heaviness.

APPELLATION
Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, California

CRITICAL ACCLAIM
"At first quite closed, the 2016 Pinot Noir Rochioli River Block undergoes a dramatic transformation in the glass. Crushed raspberry, mint, rosewater and citrus overtones give the 2016 striking aromatic depth. The River Block is an attractive wine, but it is also quite a bit subtle and less outwardly exuberant than the other Russian River Pinots in this range. Rochioli tends to give bold, powerful Pinots. William Selyem’s 2016 leans more towards the finesse side of the spectrum." – Vinous, 93pts
