  • 2013 J. Rochioli Chardonnay Sweetwater Vineyard – USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley (6/2/2018)
    WIML93

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately.

    Light yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of vanilla, hazelnut and yellow pears. Flavors of brandy soaked pears, vanilla and lemon curd. Medium acidity, full bodied. Drink or hold. I’d lean towards drinking over the next few years. (93 points)
