Usually the Rivers-Marie announcement has come out by now, right? I ordered late last year but was blown away by what I received, so I made sure to set aside funds for this year.
Should drop the 3rd Tuesday of January.
Right, for the Chardonnay and Cab I received an announcement email 7 days prior to the release as a preview of sorts. Haven’t seen that for Pinot.
Maybe they're trying to reconsider their allocation strategy since their Platt Vineyard Pinot scored 100 points. Trying to make sure long term buyers get the opportunity to secure that wine. /shrug

Just got on the Rochioli single vineyard list and see they have a Jan 20 offering for single vineyard blends.

Is “single vineyard blend” an oxymoron?

Usually their single vineyard Chardonnay is in March. I skipped the Pinot last August, I hope I didn’t get dropped. Their single vineyard Chardonnay’s are amazing and best value from rochioli.

yes
I'm just copy/pasting from the email [snort.gif] I suppose it makes it sound fancy, or maybe emphasizing there's no purchased fruit from other sources in the blends
14% from vineyard X, 56% from vineyard Y and the remainder from vineyard Z.

First offer is in January- Estate Single Vineyard Blends
Second offer is in March- Single Vineyard Chardonnays
Third offer is in August- Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs
