17.5 points, Jancis Robinson: "Mid healthy garnet. Relatively complex savoury burgundian(?) nose. Sweet palate entry but not sickly. Really satisfying – fresh and fruity but with depths that suggest it will age quite well. Lovely balance. Côte de Beaune not Côte de Nuits (sorry for these French similes).
Riva Ranch Pinot Noir is sourced exclusively from Wente’s family’s vineyard in Arroyo Seco, Monterey. This sub region is ideal to grow Pinot Noir due to the long cool growing season, which allows the grapes to fully ripen and develop deep fruit flavours, beautiful aromas and flavours of cherry and red apple with notes of black tea.
Take advantage of our Thelema shipment with savings of 30%. The reds are aged cleverly in barrels where the oak does not overshadow the fruit. The whites have a freshness and balance that other wines double the price would die for...

A tight, mineral wine with classic Hamilton Russell Vineyards length and complexity. Prominent pear and lime fruit aromas and flavours are brought beautifully into focus by a tight line of bright natural acid and a long, dry minerality. An elegant, yet textured and intense wine with a strong personality of both place and vintage.
A beautifully rich, yet balanced California-style Chardonnay that represents what the Arroyo Seco appellation has to offer. Chardonnay flavours of apple and pear, whilst the Arroyo Seco fruit consistently provides aromas and flavours of tropical and stone fruits.
