    September 26, 2019 - Last bottle. Nice nose with citrus, peaches, melon, honey, slight floral. Inviting nose. the palate started seemingly on the sherried side. I was worried it may be getting over the hill. It just needed some time. Layers of flavor with peach, melon, honey. Very smooth with a longer finish. Good acidity and balance, not flabby at all. Not alcoholic or hot. Still probably better a year ago.

    March 13, 2018 - Citrus, peaches, apricots, melons, honey, and hints of floral. Medium to full bodied wine with a medium to long finish. I suspect it will benefit from a couple more years in the bottle before opening another one.

    May 7, 2017 - Decent CA Chardonnay, balanced in a RRV way, but too heavy, alcoholic and rich for my taste. I could find something to pair it with, but better as an aperitif and move on to something more refined. I would rather drink Bourgogne.

While this is definitely a California Chard it wasn't over the top. Solid balance to it throughout the wine. I honestly don't have enough experience with Rochioli to know how long this will last, but I think it can improve a little and drink well for a few more years.

    August 8, 2014 - Well balanced highly extracted Chardonnay. Melon notes with caramel. Minerality with gentle oak and veryong complex finish. Beautiful.
