2015 Blankiet Estate Rive Droite, Paradise Hills Vineyard

Rive Droite

Our true Bordeaux Right Bank wine. Merlot with a touch of Cabernet Franc. This wine is gorgeously fruit forward with a core of minerality.

    The 2015 Rive Droite is the most reticent of these 2015s today. In 2015, the Rive Droite has more structure and power than is typically the case, which may be a result of the higher percentage of Cabernet Franc in the blend. I imagine the 2015 is going to need at least a number of years in bottle to be at its best. There is plenty of intrigue, with myriad savory notes that emerge over time. Even so, patience will be rewarded. The 2015 Rive Droite is a fabulous wine by any measure.

    The ultra-sensuous Rive Droite reveals gorgeous nose of allspice, cinnamon, dried roses and lavender, blueberry compote and mulberries. This elegant, beautifully poised palate, black fruits is framed by firm yet oh-so lively grained tannins. Finishing long and softly spoken. Very classy wine!
