The 2015 Vintage started with a cool spring that limited crop yields
severely...especially in the Sonoma Coast. The lower crop yields produced
a fairly intense vintage with riper fruit profiles.
Our Pinot Noir fermentations are relatively short...typically lasting
form 9-11 days. We don’t have a rule based approach to using whole
clusters but most ferments include 10-20% whole clusters.

2016 was a year characterized by low crop yields and even
ripening. Our 2016 Flanagan Chardonnay Bacigalupi
Vineyard spent 11 months in French cooperage with 40% of
that new.

 The key to the wine is the bright acidity
that ties everything together
. This is a great example of what top
Russian River Chardonnay sites can produce when wine making is
focused on balance.

This inaugural release of the 2016 Riley’s Rows "Three by Three" Proprietary Red Blend North Coast, is an awesome reflection of some of our favorite North Coast vineyard sites. The Merlot is from our Brandt ranch in Lake County... which is one of the best vineyards in Lake County. The Cabernet and Syrah are both from great Sonoma County sites.

The 2016 Riley’s Rows Cabernet Sauvignon North Coast reflects the balance and focus of the 2016 vintage. The 2016 vintage was cooler than 2015 so the 2016 wines are less rich and more focused. In general, the cooler growing season meant grapes tended to ripen at lower Brix levels and lower pHs than they did in 2015.

The nose displays a very pretty ripe Ruby Red grapefruit and that follows through in the palate. The acidity is crisp but not overwhelming. The wine has a great mouth feel and nice balance. This is a lovely Sauvignon Blanc and a nice example of what the grape can do in California when it is well farmed, not over-ripe, and made in a balanced way
$27.00 per Bottle

The nose shows notes of honeysuckle, vanilla, and citrus blossom. On the palate the wine has ripe red apple, lychee, marzipan, and a hint of clover honey on the finish. The wine has bright acidity and an elegant minerality. This is a stunning example of an AVA wine made from the top vineyards in Sonoma County.

The center of this wine is Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from Mount Veeder, Coombsville and Yountville vineyards, and shows Cab’s brambly black fruit, red currant, and minerality, tempered with rich Spring Mountain District syrah’s plum and spice, with nuance from Yountville Merlot’s and Franc’s soft texture.

$66.00 per Bottle
