ROCHIOLI PINOT RIVER BLOCK '09
ROCHIOLI PINOT NOIR "RIVER BLOCK", RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2009
The 2009 Pinot Noir River Block comes across as rich, frank and straightforward. An initial burst of fruit is followed by subtler notes that develop in the glass. Rose petals, hard candy and white flowers make an appearance with time, but the 2009 really needs another few years to blossom. Right now, the future looks very bright. The River Block is one of the 2009 Pinots that is far more interesting than its 2010 counterpart at this stage. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.
