International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 168

(a Right Bank blend based on 90% merlot): Dark medium ruby. Cooler on the nose than the Proprietary Red, offering sexy scents of blackberry, violet, licorice and leather. Then more opulent and open-knit on the palate, but with outstanding structure for a merlot-based wine. This utterly seamless example delivers insidious sweetness of fruit complicated by ineffable notes of wild herbs, licorice and spices. Very classy and long on the aftertaste, with wonderfully refined tannins. A great California merlot.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 209

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.
