This is there luxury cuvee. It was pop and pour which did this a disservice as it was quite tight. Purple in color. The nose is deep with cassis, coffee and slight peppery notes. On the palate, this is quite tannic and tight. It is delicious. Plenty of cassis fruit. Depth. It slowly unwinds in the glass. The future is very bright for this. Around $125 per bottle is not inexpensive, but it is an excellent wine.
An outstanding Sonoma Cabernet. At $50, this is certainly priced in the ball park. it is very tight right now, so it needs some cellaring or air before serving. Purple in color. The nose has sweet cassis fruit, some dark cherries and tobacco with spice. On the palate, there are firm tannins. Pretty black cherry fruit. Nice finish.
Ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose is nice; earthy with cherries. On the palate, this is bigger in style with cherries and slight sour cherries. Nice texture. Plenty of depth. Should improve with some short term cellaring. Very nice.
Ruby in color. The nose has cherries/cherry juice. On the palate, this is a bit one dimenstional. More feminine in nature. Cherries. Actually, in the world of Pinot Noir and especially from RRV, this is a pretty good value. It lacks the depth of some but also the price tag. Great for parties.
This is not the greatest Napa Cab on the market. It also costs around $20, so it doesn't have to be. It certainly presents a nice value and is just fine for parties. Purple in color. The nose has dark cherries, cedar, baking spices and dust. On the palate, this is a bit generic; dark cherries with slight earth. Very tasty and goes well with party appetizers and main dishes. A nice value.
Light golden in color. i believe this is their most recent release of a Chardonnay. The nose is very nice with grapefruits, a floral quality and slight peach. There is also a vanilla component to this wine. On the palate, there is some oak showing that will surely integrate quickly. It is very tight at first but explodes in the glass with air. Slightly oily texture which I love. Great fruit; peaches, grapefruits and even a bit of honey. Long, long finish. This wines best days are ahead but if you are lucky enough to have multiple bottles, drinking one young should not be missed eit
