J. Rochioli Chardonnay Russian River Valley Rachael's Vineyard 2006

Member Review by WineborkDotCom:

This spectacular Chardonnay is just entering its prime, and will be there for some years to come. Tremendous freshness and energy and transparency in the aromas and flavors of caramelized nuts, honey, pear, lemon peel, mineral water and subtle white flowers. Lingering finish carries a hint of toastiness, but all is in harmony in this crisp, pure, wonderful white.

With three generations of dedication to the land, Rochioli Vineyards and Winery has earned the reputation as one of Sonoma County's finest wineries. 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. Always in demand, always revered and always rated among the best varietals to be sought anywhere in the world. This commitment to quality is unwavering and our promise to everyone who uncorks a bottle of our wine. Read less

The 2006 Chardonnay Rachael's Vineyard (Mt. Eden clone) possesses classic acacia flower, white currant, brioche, peach, and orange blossom characteristics with a hint of smoky hazelnuts in the background. This fabulously rich effort gets my nod as Rochioli s finest 2006 Chardonnay, although all of them are impressive. It will age effortlessly for 7-8 years.
