07 Rochioli Pinot Noir ($60) ☺☺☺☺

The waiting list to get onto the Rochioli wine purchasing is about 5 years currently. We first went there in 2008 so I am really looking forward to 2013 ! This wine showed great complexity, the tannins have evolved and now are smooth with just a hint of bite, the taste was deep cherry jam with lashings of plum. On the nose dark tea was very evident as well as some vanilla. This is drinking really well right now but will still last a few more years in my opinion. At the time of tasting we gave it 92 points with a  comment that it was very fruit forward. If you see it, which is unlikely just buy it !
