NOVEMBER RRC CLUB SHIPMENT (Ships beginning November 26, 2018)
November’s Richard Reserve Club shipment adheres to our past tradition of offering a mix of something new, exclusive and true to our wine club members this time of year. New is the 2017 vintage of our Jos. Belli Vineyard Chardonnay. Exclusive to our RRC members is a very limited (50 cases) Monte Rosso Vineyard Petite Sirah, and true is a one-time library offering of the 2013 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Each of these wines reflect the accumulation of Richard’s 50-plus years of mastery at combining vineyard and winemaking style.
2017 Amapola Creek Chardonnay Jos. Belli Vineyards -The 2017 Chardonnay Jos. Belli Vineyards has lovely yeasty/toasty scents over a core of white peaches, lemon tart, pineapple and lime leaves with orange blossoms and fresh ginger in the background. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers plenty of rich, ripe stone fruit and tropical scents with a pleasantly oily texture and great length. 92-94 Points (Barrel Sample) Lisa Perrotti-Brown -The Wine Advocate Jun 2018
2015 Amapola Creek Petite Sirah Monte Rosso Vineyard -Very deep purple-black in color, the 2015 Petite Sirah Monte Rosso Vineyard is a little youthfully muted, offering crushed blackcurrants and mulberries scents with touches of incense, fragrant earth and baking spices plus a touch of dried flowers. Full-bodied and concentrated, it delivers a wall of black fruits with a taut frame of chewy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long and earthy. 93+ Points Lisa Perrotti-Brown -The Wine Advocate Jun 2018
2013 Amapola Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Vineyard -The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, is brilliant. Notes of graphite, crème de cassis, blueberry and blackberry along with some espresso are all present in this dense, full-bodied wine with great fruit, beautiful purity and moderately high tannins. There are just under 1,600 cases. This wine should drink well for 25-30 years. 96 Points Robert M Parker Jr -The Wine Advocate Mar 2016
