    September 3, 2018 - a lovely wine that is drinking nicely now - as with most CA PNs, I was disappointed with the lack of complexity in the nose - just straightforward mature red/black cherry fruit, but then what's not to like about that? - very full-bodied in the mouth with good acid-fruit-tannin balance - medium length 15 sec finish - a very good food wine for those who like new world PNs, but would not impress Burgundy lovers

    May 2, 2017 - Rochioli Single Vineyard Pinots continue to be among my favorites. Although almost 9 years old, this West Block Pinot continues to deliver in every aspect. California Burgundy at it's best.

    October 24, 2016 - Big wine, showed some of the smoke of the vintage. Bit of orange peel on the palate. Hoped this would be better...

    November 8, 2015 - Nose of burnt cherries and cinnamon. Cherry cola with cinnamon on the finish

    June 9, 2015 - Double decanted for 30 minutes. Dark red. Rich pure nose of red and blue fruits; almost liqueur of raspberries. Smooth on the palate with good richness but a bit of heat and oak at the finish. More elegance than other Rochioli SVDs (except East block), but that is a relative term as these are big ripe wines, but have a certain quality.
