International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 138

($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.

The newest single vineyard offering, the 2006 Chardonnay Sweetwater Vineyard, emerges from a spectacular hillside site planted with an Old Wente clone. It displays a distinctive minerality along with superb notes of white fruits, cold steel, citrus oils, and spring flowers. Reminiscent of a Chevalier-Montrachet from Burgundy, this beautiful, long, concentrated Chardonnay with great acidity should last for 6-10 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

A rich, fruity, concentrated style, with smoky fig, apricot, honey and butterscotch flavors that are full-bodied and long and persistent on the finish.

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.
