14.5% alcohol. Bright cherry color. Pretty, classic Rochioli nose of black cherry, baking spice, and a touch of minerality. In the mouth, this is rich with cherry fruit, with a nice spike of acidity, and there is a touch of heat lingering on the finish. May be coming around more quickly than other vintages. A-
Wine presented in a weird stage that night. Remembered my first bottle was way more in place. Every component are there but look to me less cohesive then 1-2 years ago. Classic RRV fruit, alcohol spiking ++, interesting minerals/saline notes, a lot of spices (cinnamon, clove, star anis). Good but not great.
