    Winemaker's Notes:

    Lots of dark fruit such as blackberries and plums with cola and fennel are the first aromatic impressions. A fatness in the texture brings through concentrated flavors of wild blackberries, mineral, fresh cut herbs and cola across the palate. The satiny tannins complement the classic long finish that always says Riverblock.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A triumph, one of the greatest Riverblock bottlings in years. This always is a captivating wine, but the '09 is particularly scrumptious. Although it's quite tannic and acidic, it's forward enough in raspberries, cherries and cola to enjoy now. But it's bone dry and as elegant as California Pinot Noir gets. The balance suggests an ability to age for a good 10 years, if not longer.

    Vivid ruby. Christmas spices, red berries and incense on the nose, with an exotic note of orange peel adding complexity. Sappy strawberry and raspberry preserve flavors are brightened by tangy minerality and complicated by a vanilla bean quality, with fine-grained tannins adding grip. Gains weight with air but remains lively and precise. The clean, nervy finish boasts outstanding clarity and spicy persistence.

    International Wine Cellar

    Very rich and concentrated, this delivers layered flavors built around ripe plum, wild berry and black cherry, joined by wilted rose and spicy aromatics that are still a little diffuse, yet offer plenty of depth and complexity. Best from 2013 through 2022. 562 cases made.
