2011 Castalia - Pinot Noir Rochioli Vineyard Russian River
"Rochioli’s long time serving cellar-master, Terry Bering has been making Pinot since 1985 and helps craft all the glorious Rochioli wines, while making a small production of his own wine under the Castalia label. With Terry’s Castalia you get about half River Block fruit and other select sites on the estate and of course it shows through, even in such a tough year as 2011 this wine shows it's pedigree and poise with lovely fruit and super long finish. The nose starts fresh and bright with hints at red citrus, smoke and some floral notes before and racy palate of plum, cherry and cranberry to start before giving way to more cherry, strawberry, raspberry, vanilla, cola bean and smooth mocha while flashes of mineral, saline, fennel, violets and earth give detail. This is a first class Pinot with nice lift and vibrancy, but with all the rich and silky feel that is a trademark in these wines" -SFWTC Staff
