There are 500 cases of the 2005 Pinot Noir Little Hill Vineyard. Reminiscent of a Russian River version of a top-notch Richebourg, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue along with scents of roasted meats, kirsch liqueur, blackberries, spring flowers, and spice. About 50% new French oak is used, but it is completely absorbed by the wine’s wealth of fruit and texture. Kudos to Tom Rochioli, one of the wine world’s great guys who, without any fanfare, continues to turn out world-class wines of extraordinary aromatic and flavor dimensions. Pure and full-bodied with supple tannin as well as terrific acidity, this stunning Pinot is only exceeded by its sibling, the 2005 Pinot Noir West Block.
