2018 Holdredge Rochioli Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., $70. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Admirable purity of Bing cherry perfume with a hint of dark red rose petal and dark chocolate. Bold, yet discreet in a mid-weight plus style gifting a hearty charge of black cherry and cola flavor. Some, but not intrusive tannin is evident providing harmonious support to the rich fruit load. The extraordinarily long and generous finish seems to last an eternity. Built to age shown by the wine's excellence when re-tasted from an open bottle the following day. No mistaking the allure of Rochioli fruit which provided me with an early and and unusually gratuitous Xmas gift. Score: 95. Reviewed December 12, 2021
