Rochioli J Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Light, bright yellow. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes lemon curd, honeysuckle, anise and white pepper, with deeper pear and beeswax nuances. Intense citrus fruit and bitter pear skin flavors, picking up sweetness and flesh with air. Refuses to let up on the finish, which leaves notes of succulent herbs and honey behind.

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

Nice, crisp and bright Sauv-Blanc that is good example of its region and producer. Low 90's score . . . maybe 91-92.

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

Excellent. Full bodied Sauvignon Blanc. Apples and citrus smells. Will definitely be ordering some of this online when we start running low.

Pale yellow. High-pitched aromas of lemon zest green apple jasmine and iodine with a hint of white pepper coming up with air. Dry and precise sauvignon offering solid punch to its intense citrus and floral flavors. Powerful but weightless wine with excellent finishing clarity and length. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

A pale, creamy yellow. Hints of tropical fruit and grapefruit on the nose. An intense, complex and richly flavored wine with an incredibly lingering finish.

91 points - Stephen Tanzer's 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."-Josh Raynolds, May/June 2010
