J. Rochioli 2011 Sweetwater Chardonnay (Russian River Valley)

The Sweetwater block is the highest on the Rochioli estate, stretching into the hills. The wine is very concentrated in green apples, spicy Asian pears and insanely ripe summer peaches. It's quite oaky, with strong buttered toast notes, yet the oak is balanced with the fruit. A classy, flashy wine that drinks well now, and should develop in the bottle over the next 4–6 years.
