Rochioli Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2008 Wine Review (NW)
Bright citrus, honey, and vanilla on the nose
Full bodied on the palate
Lemon lime and vanilla on the finish
I was pleasantly surprised with this wine because it pulls off quite a feat. It has a full-bodied and richly-textured quality that dances with a surprisingly crisp, acidic, green apple and citrus quality. It's neither one or the other- rather a remarkable combination of the two. For $40 or so, check it out. And raise a glass!
