2012RochioliRRSB2012 Rochioli, Sauvignon Blanc, Estate Grown, Russian River Valley.
The latest Rochioli Estate Grown Russian River Valley is one of the finest vintages yet for this very popular wine and is a really delicious white that delivers everything you’d ever want from a domestic Sauvignon Blanc. Rochioli shows it’s class and commitment to quality in this delightful edition of the Estate Grown Sauvignon Blanc, it is a super summer wine with vibrant flavors and interesting terroir character. The 2012 shows loads of bright and tangy citrus with lemon-lime, grapefruit and tangerine notes along with hints of verbena, peach and melon that adds complexity of fruit and touches of herb and light grassiness that does come across as too aggressive and shows a sense of place. Not too easy to find, but well worth a little work to get, especially a visit to Rochioli’s tasting room.
