    May 7, 2016 - Holding very well and also drinking well. Certainly at it's prime but it should hold for at least a couple of years. No reason to wait on this one.

    November 22, 2013 - Golden in color. 14.2% ABV. Pear, apple and smoke on the nose. Viscuous, lively and full bodied. Medium acidity. Lemon, peach, citrus and hazlenut on the palate. Gorgeous Chardonnay with a long, lush finish. I think many underestimate how well Rochioli Chardonnay (the single vineyards in particular) can age. Drink this over the next 1-2 years.

    October 23, 2013 - straw yellow color, apple, honey and vanilla nose, mostly apple and honey flavors with some oakiness, more restrained and more acid than the 2006 River Block. Nice medium finish.

    October 7, 2013 - Medium-bright yellow-gold color. Aromas of lemon, honeyed pear, apple, and melon. Palate has sweet vanilla, lemon, apple, and pear notes with a slight toasty note on the medium-long finish. Drinking well now. Drink.
