The 500 Chevaux is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon: muscular, naturally more tannic and built to age yet with a plush and polished mouthfeel and lingering finish.
This voluptuous and concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon shows rich aromas of blackberry and creme de cassis that evolve into notes of violet and and wild berry liqueur. Hints of espresso and dark chocolate with soft, savory notes of cigar box unfold in the background. The wine is opulent, with firm structure and radiant tannins.
Intentionally crafted from Malbec and Syrah, the grapes for this impeccably dry rosé were meticulously farmed on Bald Mountain Ranch atop Mount Veeder.
Here, vivid aromas bring to mind blood orange, tart cherry, citrus zest and hibiscus flower alongside notes of red cherries, pomegranate, dry berries and white tea.
The wine is bright and focused on the palate, with a vibrant acidity and medium body. With an ethereal finish lasts and lasts, this is a true wine lover’s rosé with a South of France soul and a Napa Valley attitude.
The 2017 “Improvisation” displays an entirely opaque, dark purple-black core with hints of magenta on the rim. The nose is enticing and powerful, showing off intoxicating liqueur notes of créme de cassis and kirsch, alongside ripe black cherry, blackberries, fresh-picked violets, cacao, baking spices, vanilla and coffee bean, tobacco leaf, and crushed stones. The palate is full-bodied and mouth-coating with immense layers of dark fruit that are unabashedly rich and ripe. All this, however, is proportionately balanced by waves of persisting freshness and a touch of acidity that keeps it from entering a sappy / cloying territory that many “Cult Cabs” can’t seem to shake. This forward style wine will drink at its finest over the next 5-7 years with proper storage, but it is delicious right now and needs no further aging to enjoy.
The first vintage of Downbeat Chardonnay is sourced high up in the Mayacamas Mountains overlooking Napa Valley on Bald Mountain Ranch . This special vineyard produces a Chardonnay that is light and refreshing with notes of baked brioche, hazelnut, apple, nutmeg and vanilla. Lemon leads on the palate with warm apple pie and cream. A clean mineral finish of chalk and limestone leave a light impression and you wanting for more. Pairs perfectly with a bright salad, chicken, fatty fish or any nutty cheese.
Dark, powerful, and juicy, with terrific fruit intensity from start to finish. Black cherry, chocolate, plum, licorice, and spice infuse this pliant, super-expressive wine. The near-perfect 2016 growing season started early, saw ideal weather conditions throughout and wrapped up as the valley's first significant fall rainstorm arrived on October 14. Thanks to a relatively steady and mild July and August and then a series of warm days at the end of the growing season, vineyards were able to progress to perfect ripeness. Wines from the 2016 vintage are now quietly developing in cellars throughout Napa Valley and vintners are pinching themselves and smiling for the gift it appears Mother Nature has given them: a fifth consecutive vintage of stellar quality Napa Valley wines.
Stone fruits, flowers and black cherries, all of the things that make a farmer's market perfection for me live in this fine wine. Ethereal lightness with intensity, this wine pushes your imagination one way and then another. Is it Nureyev or is it Bruce Lee? Either way it is a combination of tightly wound power in an incredibly artistic wrapper. It glides with an elegance and grace across the palate
The 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is flushed with wild herbs, blackberry, cherry, cloves & anise. Rich flavors of chocolate, blackberries, & thyme are supported by the wines structured, opulent tannins, resulting in a dense, inviting wine that lingers on the palate with notes of black fruit, slate and cocoa.
Aromas of ripe blackberry and plum leap from the glass, as the flavors of lavender and black cherry Segway into herbal notes of dried sage. The substantial & dense coating tannins linger on the palate for more than 45 seconds and invites you to take another sip.
The wine has a bright nose of fresh peach and ripe citrus. The palate reveals notes of Honeydew melon, plum, and Blood orange. The 2020 Riley’s Rows Rosé is delightful on its own but has the character and depth of flavor to pair with food. It can be enjoyed on the pontoon boat or with a duck confit salad at a top restaurant.
The 2020 Riley’s Rows Sauvignon Blanc was sourced from the Redwood Valley Grape Ranch, which we own and farm in Mendocino County. The wine offers a bright nose of melon and citrus blossom. The palate opens with ripe Meyer lemon and resolves into a delightful Ruby Red grapefruit note. The goal with this wine is to offer a fresh style of Sauvignon Blanc with pretty fruit, great acidity, and a clean finish. As always, it is desired to make this a varietally-correct wine that is well made, delicious, and affordable. Pairs beautifully with fresh seafood like a sea bass or scallop crudo or sashimi.
