Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 92

($55) Bright yellow. Pungent orchard fruits, flowers and minerals on the nose, with a suave smoky quality adding depth. Palate-staining pear and honeyed citrus flavors provide excellent palate coverage and repeat the smoky note. The minerality returns on the finish, which is broad, chewy and impressively long.

The 2008 Chardonnay River Block (made from old Wente and Hanzell clones) is a medium to full-bodied, elegant effort displaying abundant lemon and orange blossom notes along with hints of tropical fruits, crushed rocks, and pears. This zesty, substantial Chardonnay comes close to equaling the brilliant but more backward 2007 River Block.

About This Producer


With three generations of dedication to the land, Rochioli Vineyards and Winery has earned the reputation as one of Sonoma County's finest. This family legacy began in 1938, when Joe Rochioli Sr. purchased land he had long farmed. He had the foresight to know that the soil of the Russian River Valley would one day produce some of the world's greatest wines. His son Joe Jr. embraced this vision and today craft renowned, terrior-driven wines built on a foundation of superb fruit.

The result has been a decades-long tradition of outstanding vintages: Silky-smooth, fruit-forward Pinot Noirs; rich, opulent Chardonnays; and tangy, food-friendly Sauvignon Blancs.
