92pointsGary Farrell 2011 Rochioli Vineyard Chardonnay (Russian River Valley)

Awesomely rich and buttery, with new French oak showing up as toast, and the intensely concentrated fruit of the vineyard starring in the form of pineapple and papaya jam. Bright acidity makes the richness shine, while moderate alcohol, officially 14.1% by volume, keeps everything light and transparent. Drink now–2016, before the fruit fades.
