Wine Advocate # 186 (Dec. 2009) Review of 2005 Rive Droite, Paradise Hills Vineyard

Rive Droite

Review by Robert Parker

Rating: (93)

The 2005 Merlot, which is now called Rive Droite is an 800-case blend with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc added. An elegant, dark ruby/purple-colored wine with a sweet nose of espresso roast, dark black cherries, licorice, underbrush, and truffle in an elegant, full-bodied, rich, concentrated style, this wine should drink nicely for 12-15+ years.

Drink 2007 – 2022
