There are 534 cases. From another Russian River vineyard up the street from the winery is the 2005 Chardonnay Martinelli Road. Tangerine oil, lemon blossom, crushed rocks, white currants, and a hint of honeysuckle are present in this full-bodied, rich, pure, and layered wine. It is gorgeously complex already, but should age nicely for 5-7 years.
