Roar Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017
Perfumed and floral, with blackberry, cherry, and vanilla aromas, this wine from our home ranch delivers abundant fruit balanced by savory leather and dried herbs. Dense boysenberry and raspberry anchor a velvety palate and a long, seamless finish laced with oregano, dusty earth, and rose petals.

Wine EnthusiastLighter in the glass, this bottling is a somewhat more delicate style than usual for the Franscioni family, but just as delicious if not more so depending on preference. Aromas of raspberry, pomegranate and wild thyme lead into a palate that's loaded with strawberry, white pepper and bay leaf, finishing on vanilla cream.
Wine SpectatorContoured, featuring lilting flavors of dried raspberry, cherry and underbrush, supported by medium-grained tannins. Beefy notes emerge midpalate, leading to a silky, well-spiced finish. Drink now through 2024.
