The 2009 River's Red is rich, ripe and round. Prepare your palate for blackberries, plums and cassis backed by dusty milk chocolate. The generous mid-palate and soft tannins make this the perfect candidate for barbecues and casual dinners.
Blend: 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 2% Cinsault
"A more focused River’s Red than in recent vintages, the 2009 clicks on all cylinders. Initially it strikes you as a pleasantly fruity and forward blend, but in fact it’s 74% Cabernet from a mix of A-level vineyards. It plays out well across a full midpalate, with mixed berries, cherries, hints of forest, earth, toast, juicy acids, fine-grained tannins and a lick of mocha in the finish.
