The 2005 Chardonnay River Block, produced from the old Wente and Hanzell clones, reveals scents of buttered citrus, crushed rocks, white currants, peaches, and tropical fruits. Full-bodied with zesty acidity (a characteristic of the vintage) as well as fabulous concentration and length, it can be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years. Kudos to Tom Rochioli, one of the wine world’s great guys who, without any fanfare, continues to turn out world-class wines of extraordinary aromatic and flavor dimensions. (RP)
Light gold. Racy, precise aromas of vibrant pear and apple skin underpinned by suave mineral tones. Deeply concentrated flavors of smoky peach and pear, exotic baking spices and cured meat. There's lots going on here. Finishes weighty and velvety but with excellent length and precision. This doesn't want to let go of the palate.
This is the lightest of Rochioli’s Chards, body-wise, and the softest. It has a melted butter mouthfeel, but it’s a very layered, nuanced wine, with intense Meyer lemon, vanilla custard and smoky oak flavors, and has a gorgeous, voluptuous quality.
