Vinous (Dec. 2016) 2014 Blankiet Estate Rive Droite, Paradise Hills Vineyard

Rive Droite

Review by Antonio Galloni

Rating: (95+)

Blankiet’s 2014 Rive Droite Paradise Hills Vineyard is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. Dark, rich and inviting, the 2014 wraps around the palate with pure sensuality and class. Dark stone fruit, smoke, mocha and espresso are all fused together in a deep, beautifully layered wine. The 2014 is at once rich but not at all heavy. In many ways, it captures the very best the vintage has to offer.
