Critical Acclaim

Wine Spectator
Graceful and polished, with expressive raspberry, violet and delicate licorice accents that take on richness and depth toward the lingering finish. Drink now through 2025.
Wine Enthusiast
As the name suggests, this wine comes off a rocky part of the estate vineyard, creating a sturdy platform for its rich array of blueberry and brambly cherry fruit. There's a whiff of chicken stock also, and it's still tight with youthful tension. Give it plenty of aeration or an extra year or two in bottle before popping the cork.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Pinot Noir Rocheux is pale to medium ruby-purple with black cherries, roasted blueberries and bramble berry preserves plus notions of bitter root and tree bark with touches of wood smoke and cola. Light to medium-bodied, it's packed with earthy fruit in the mouth framed by grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long.

Discover Blended Red Wine Wines

In the United States, a red mix is any American wine that isn't produced from a single grape type. It's an odd classification since many, if not all, red wines are and have always been mixes. A grand cru Bordeaux produced entirely of Cabernet, as well as Chiantis made entirely of Sangiovese, are the exception rather than the norm. In addition, California law only requires a wine's label to contain 75% of the grape type.

Winemakers combine grapes because it enables them to create a wine in a sense. A splash of Merlot may help soften Cabernet's tannins, while a dash of Syrah can give watery, inexpensive Pinot some punch. Blending is common in several regions: Rioja, for example, has traditionally blended Tempranillo, Graciano, and Garnacha. Many modern, inexpensive red blends, on the other hand, are simply created for mass appeal—lots of superripe, black fruit and no acidity—using whatever varietals would suffice.
