    September 8, 2018 - Great wine. Drank over 2 days. Much better on first day. Drink now or hold a couple years

    June 23, 2018 - Opened with dinner last night at Garwoods Restaurant in Carnelian Bay, Lake Tahoe, CA. Rochioli Single Vineyard Pinots never fail to impress. Getting better with every passing year. Planning on opening a 2013 Sweetwater Pinot tonight at the Lone Eagle Grill in Incline Village.

    May 4, 2017 - Straight from my wine cellar, I let it sit open for 20 minutes just to warm up a little. From the very first taste this Rochioli S.V. reminded me of just why I spend the money for these wines. Rochioli is, IMHO, one of the top 5 Burgundies in the world! They never fail to impress.

    February 11, 2017 - Decanted for an hour. What a pleasure! Rich and pure. Wait a year or two for next; though, wine did not move much during 3 hours.

    May 20, 2016 - Medium plus ruby, nose initially quite oaky, then tightened up to stony raspberry notes, then fleshed out again after about 2 hrs. Unmistakeably Californian, very ripe, fleshy, hedonistic. Quite tasty, but at present it tends to clash with more subtle food. Think bigger for cuisine pairing.
