2014 Rochioli "River Block" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1301183 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Rochioli's 2014 Chardonnay River Block is rich, layered and voluptuous, with plenty of the oiliness that is such a signature of the Wente clone. Peach, apricot, honey, wild flowers flesh out as the wine opens up into its expressive finish. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2016)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Apricot, melon and caramel apple provide an alluring richness to this concentrated, full-bodied wine, which finds its balance in texture and power as it opens in the glass. Pretty aromatics provide the counterpoint to the curvy lustiness at its core, offering focus and finesse. (VB) Inner quote mark (10/2016)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Remarkably pure, this shows richness, depth and an elegant body, offering a seamless expression of ripe pear, honeydew, peach, apricot and fig notes. Turns spicy, with light cedary oak. Impresses with complex flavors, texture and persistence. (JL) Inner quote mark (6/2016)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Chardonnay Riverblock (which comes from a site near the river, as the name suggests) is made from an old Wente clone. This is quintessential Russian River Chardonnay, with notes of tangerine oil, orange blossom, honeysuckle and lemon rind. It has a light greenish gold color and a full-bodied, beautiful, well-delineated mouthfeel and finish. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (3/2016)
