Bright yellow-gold. Smoky, mineral-accented aromas of orange zest, poached pear and iodine, with a floral accent that builds with air. Juicy, penetrating orchard fruit flavors show impressive intensity and and good tangy citrus lift. Shows serious power and focus on the finish, where the iodine and pear notes repeat.

The 2010 Chardonnay River Block emerges from the glass with tangerine, citrus, mint, spices and apricots. It shows lovely depth in its aromas and flavors, with an oily mouthfeel that is undeniably appealing. The River Block is made predominantly from Wente clones, plus a selection of River Hill Chardonnay Rochioli sourced from Steve Kistler.

On the delicate, understated side, yet rich with ripe peach, nectarine and tangerine flavors that linger, ending with a touch of crushed rock.

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.
