Rochioli Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2006

Member Review by WineborkDotCom:

For some reason, I found the 2006 Rochioli Estate Chardonnay to be a bit less complete and interesting than other recent vintages. That said, this wine still possesses the usual Rochioli purity and crispness along with peachy fruit, subtle spice, and a smoky edge, especially in the finish. Good Chardonnay, but I prefer the 2005, 2007, and 2008 vintages to the 2006.

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
