($30): This wine is a great way to tell what the single vineyard bottlings from Rochioi might be like. That said, I’m looking forward to the fall release. Cherry and beet aromas with a dash of spice. New oak rears its head and dominates for a while and then simmers down to a dull roar. Good round fruit on the palate with a spice frame and the ever present oak in the background. Still pretty tight, I’d give it six months to a year to chill out and the drink it over the next three to five years. If you open it now, decant and air it for 30 minutes or so.
