($60) Light gold color. Suave and understated, with a sexy bouquet of tangerine, white flowers, minerals and mace. Juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors offer excellent clarity and mineral snap, picking up zesty spices with air. A silky, elegant wine, with outstanding finishing clarity and persistence. This vineyard is planted to the Wente clone, from cuttings that Rochioli got from Kistler.

Part of my experiment with aging whites - I had been buying some of the single vineyard Rochioli chards. I thought it was ok overall - my wife didn't exactly care for it. It definitely wasn't worth the $50-$60 we paid. Memory seems to me that it was a bit on the fatty side, but not by much. Looking forward to see how my others shape up after laying down a bit longer. Overall - this was a great $30 bottle of wine though.
