Just released, this wine is already tasting beautifully, and it is not necessary to defer one's gratification. It's like a broken record with Rochioli wines, but this Chardonnay is again beautifully balanced, pure, and harmonious. Subtle aromas of butterscotch, ripe peaches, citrus, yeast, and nutmeg. Round and silky-smooth mouth-feel with good richness and length. It makes one anxious to taste the single-vineyard 2007's, though nervous to contemplate the prices. - HK 2008-10-28
