Nuts, slightly toasted and lightly buttered white bread, white flowers and a rather cool-ish nose. Complex and surprisingly elegant. Would like to eventually re-taste/drink it.

2005 J. Rochioli West Block Pinot Noir

Name:West Block Pinot Noir

Producer:J. Rochioli
Region:USA / Sonoma County

One of the less typical Cali Pinot Noirs. Still a bit big, but not without its elegance. You can actually hear the grape behind the volume and you can actually enjoy it too…as long as you are in the mood for this version of the Pinot.
