J. Rochioli Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley Estate Grown 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Light, greenish gold. Mineral-accented orange, lemon and floral aromas are complicated by nuances of green tea and honeysuckle. Impressively racy and focused but far from austere, with juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a dusting of talc-y minerality. Tactile, well-delineated wine, leaving spicy and stony notes behind on the long finish. (May/Jun 2010)

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

Pleasant aromatics and a nicely moderate nose. Tropical fruits, grapefruit and flinty character. Clean and refreshing and doesn't lean to far in any one direction. Nice. - Tasted at winery 4/21/10
