    Winemaker's Notes:

    This year's Rivers Red is a Bordeaux blend with a Rhone twist. The preponderance of Merlot creates a sense of clarity and elegance. The Cabernet Franc adds high-toned, complex aromatics. The dollop of Syrah provides weight and depth. This is a beautiful wine with highlights that include berries, cola, strawberries, blueberries and a palate that is soft, juicy and balanced.

    Blend: 55% Merlot, 24% Syrah, 21% Cabernet Franc

    Critical Acclaim:

    A very fine edition of River’s Red, this returns Merlot to the first chair (55%) position, with Syrah and Cab Franc splitting the rest. Sturdy, chewy, bone dry, tannic and authoritative, it’s a quintessential steak wine. Cassis, earth, hints of dried mushroom and those stiff but powerful tannins combine to make this a standout at the price. Best Buy.
