Rochioli Pinot Noir Little Hill 2020  - First Bottle


95 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
Medium ruby-purple, the 2020 Pinot Noir Little Hill has intense aromas of cranberry, pomegranate, orange peel, aniseed, potpourri and iron. The medium-bodied palate is concentrated and spicy with generous, grainy tannins, fresh acidity and a long, layered finish. Lovely!
90 Vinous -
The 2020 Pinot Noir Little Hill is one of the darker wines in this range. It offers up scents of blueberry, cloves, licorice and lavender. There's good weight and body, along with a fair bit of tannin to wrap it all up. I would give the 2020 a year or two to fully come together. The Little Hill is a touch lean, but it is nicely donw for the year.

"2020 was an early season, so we picked it all before September 1, and the fires started on August 17. We did lay off on the percentage of new wood," he continued, explaining that lab numbers are not necessarily representative of flavor. "I tested my 2019s with the 2020s, and they showed higher smoke numbers than the 2020s, simply from the char of the barrel. The smoke numbers we saw were irrelevant because there's just much more to smoke taint than that."
