J. Rochioli Chardonnay Russian River Valley Estate Grown 2004

External Review by Epic Cellars:

The 2004 Chardonnay South River Vineyard may be even richer and fuller-bodied than the River Block. With tremendous definition and precision as well as that striking minerality that Tom Rochioli routinely obtains from his vineyards, it reveals intense tropical fruit, orange marmalade, wet stone, and honeysuckle notes. This superb Chardonnay should drink well for 5-6 years.

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

There are 335 cases of the 2004 Chardonnay River Block. Made from a blend of the Wente and Hanzell clones, it offers up aromas of honeyed hazelnuts, smoky, leesy, brioche characteristics, tropical fruit, and buttered citrus, superb structure and definition, and a blockbuster finish. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years.
