    Introducing the Castalia Pinot Noir Rochioli Vineyard 2021, a masterful creation by winemaker Terry Bering that reflects the artistry of the Rochioli vineyard, akin to a “grand cru” site in Burgundy. This ruby-hued jewel captivates with its translucent allure and entices the senses with a symphony of aromas. FMW awards it an impressive 96 Points, hailing its intense bouquet of black cherries, plums, violets, and a hint of earthiness.

    On the palate, this youthful offering reveals upfront red fruits of raspberry and strawberry, harmonizing with intricate notes of spice and flowers. The wine exhibits a medium to full body, delivering a fruit-forward, supple, and undeniably delightful mouthfeel. A testament to its allure, this Pinot Noir showcases impeccable finesse while retaining a remarkable intensity and potency.

    Aged for 15 months in French oak, 25% of which is new, the wine exudes a softness that enhances its immediate appeal. Terry Bering, with a winemaking journey spanning decades, brings his expertise to this creation, leveraging his profound connection to Rochioli Winery since 1990 and a history that dates back to crafting Pinot Noir as a home winemaker in 1985.

    Bering’s personal touch is evident as he melds the quintessential essence of Russian River Pinot Noirs – full-bodied complexity and subtle cherry nuances. With an aging potential of a decade or more, this vintage embodies both depth and vibrancy, maturing gracefully from 4 to 7 years. A limited offering to the public, Castalia Pinot Noir Rochioli Vineyard 2021 stands as a testament to Bering’s dedication and the profound character of this exceptional vineyard, acclaimed by the discerning palates of fine restaurants in the Bay Area.

    Critical Acclaim

    FMW 96
    Frank Melis Wine
    The 2021 Castalia Pinot Noir “Rochioli” is a tiny production gem sourced from what is the equivalent of a “grand cru” vineyard in Burgundy. The wine shows a ruby, almost translucent color, and has intense notes of black cherries, plums, violets, and a whiff of earthiness. This youngster is a real crowd-pleaser, lush, yet elegant, with amazing finesse yet still powerful and intense. This is an amazingly well-made wine that will benefit from short-term cellaring, or a good decant, and should cellar well for a good 10 years.
