Jeb Dunnuck Report (Jan. 2021) Review of 2018 Rive Droite, Paradise Hills Vineyard

Rive Droite

Review by Jeb Dunnuck

Rating: (99)

The 2018 Merlot Rive Droite is another powerhouse in the lineup that has both richness and elegance in spades. Gorgeous black cherries, currants, tobacco leaves, chocolate, chalky minerality, and cedar pencil notes give way to a full-bodied, seamless red with polished tannins, remarkable purity, and a great, great finish. A killer Merlot-dominated blend that flirts with perfection, enjoy bottles any time over the coming 15 – 20 years. The blend is 96.1% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. Hello, Gorgeous!
