2016 Ramey Rochioli Vineyard Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, USA (750ml)
The second vintage of this vineyard-designate is a standout: beautifully crafted to reflect its meticulously farmed fruit and master winemaking. Brioche, honeyed apple, anise and pear wrap around crisp acidity and integrated oak, the wine’s innate power balanced within an elegant framework of structure and graceful texture.

One of my favorite releases from Ramey, the 2016 Chardonnay Rochioli Vineyard comes from a Grand Cru site in the Russian River and has incredibly classic notes of white flowers, tart citrus, and subtle orchard fruits. It’s one of those wines that’s both powerful and elegant, with medium to full body, a great mid-palate, integrated acidity, and just everything in the right places. It’s a beautiful, layered, age-worthy Chardonnay to enjoy over the coming 10-15 years.

Concentrated lemon meringue, peach pastry and apple flavors build the foundation of this focused and concentrated style. Buttery and spicy notes emerge on the pure-tasting finish. Drink now through 2024.
