95 points PinotFile: "14.1% alc. Older vines from 1989 make up the bulk of the wine. Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Distinctively Rochioli fruit with aromas of Bing cherry, Chinese 5-spice as well as noticeable toasty oak. Mid-weight plus in style, with expansive and bombastic Bing cherry flavor underlain with a note of cardamom spice. Reserved tannins and easy approachability out of the gate. Big-time goodness and lengthy resolve with a glorious cherry-fueled finish. My only nit is the oak treatment is noticeable. (8/22/21)"

Producer notes: "Counterpoint to the hillside of the Allen Vineyard, the Rochioli Riverblock sits just above the bank of the Russian River. The deeper soils allow the vines to slowly mature and develop dark, baritone-like aromas and flavors. A basket full of berries dominate the nose along with fennel fronds and citrus. On the palate, the wine is harmonious and dense with dark fruit flavors and earthy undertones. Older vines from 1989 make up the bulk of the wine which translates into an unsurpassed polish to the tannins. Alcohol 14.1%."
