2019 Holdredge Rochioli Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.4% alc.,124 cases, $70. Grapes are from a block off Sweetwater Springs Road known as the Sweetwater Block planted to Rochioli Vineyard West Block cuttings. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. The nose offers a Bing cherry jubilee that is pervasive. Perfectly balanced in a middleweight style with a satisfying core of black cherry, cola and spice flavors. Silken in texture with fully immersed oak and a persistent finish that leaves one fully satiated and reaching for another sip. Not quite the intensity of fruit and length of finish as the 2018 version of this wine, but still special in its own right. Score: 94. Reviewed December 12, 2021
