"The 2010 Rive Droite Paradise Hills Vineyard (89.4% Merlot, 10.4% Cabernet Franc and a dollop of Petit Verdot) is a 300-case blend that tips the scale at 14.8% alcohol. Unlike most California Merlots that are sort of wishy-washy, lacking any real core, strength or structure, the Rive Droite is a robust, pedal-to-the-metal, earthy, meaty, super-concentrated Merlot with lots of structure and minerality. Notes of chocolate, grilled meats, roasted herbs, and espresso beans are all present in this dense, thick, unctuously textured yet compelling wine that should hit its stride in 4-5 years, and last for 25-30." - Robert Parker, robertparker.com (Oct 2013)
