2018 Blankiet "Rive Droite - Paradise Hills Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1539269 99 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2018 Merlot Rive Droite is another powerhouse in the lineup that has both richness and elegance in spades. Gorgeous black cherries, currants, tobacco leaf, 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. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Rive Droite Paradise Hills Vineyard is a blend of 96.1% Merlot and 3.9% Cabernet Franc. It delivers open-knit, compelling scents of Black Forest cake, preserved plums, blueberry compote and molten licorice with touches of garrigue, bay leaves, black olives and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is charged with energetic black and blue fruits, supported by plush tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long and earthy. (LPB) 97+ Inner quote mark (11/2020)

97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Rive Droite Paradise Hills Vineyard is a wine of pure and total sensuality. Blood orange, raspberry jam, mint, white pepper and cinnamon are some of the many notes that lift from the glass. It is another wine in this range marked by bright acids and veins of salinity that confer energy. The Merlot emerges from mostly from parcels close to the entrance of the estate that are shaded and relatively cool. It is the most reserved of the three flagship wines. Dark red plum, blood orange, mint and sweet spice leave behind the closing shades of nuance. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2021)
