Bubbles on the Beach: Riesling Brut
Join us in celebrating the creation of Rio Vista’s first-ever bubbly wine. This treasure is crisp, clean, dry and drinkable on any occasion. This perfectly balanced Riesling produces lovely aromatics of lemon zest with palate-pleasing flavors of apricot.
Pairing chocolate: Apricot and Fleur De Sel White Chocolate Truffle (swirl shaped)
2019 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
This Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful dense purple and opens with aromas of ripe dark fruit and all-spice. On the palate, intense flavors of huckleberry, elderberry, and plum mingle with lingering notes of sage, licorice, and molasses. This is a full-bodied and well-structured red with soft tannins and a long, satisfying finish.
Pairing chocolate: Pecan and Brown Sugar Truffle (wedge shaped)
2019 Estate Tempranillo
Our unabashed Spanish cowboy, so different in flavor and structure from our other wines. Red plum, boysenberry and sweet earth round the front upper and lower palate. A varietally-correct structure directs the wine to the back palate. From there, it’s a wild ride of texture shooting in all directions. Dried tobacco leaf, fig, brown baking spice, vanilla and a hint of cedar linger on the finish.
Pairing chocolate: Lemon and Cayenne Truffle (square shaped)
2019 Estate Syrah
Rio Vista Wine’s Syrah is a home-run. Savory aromas of crushed peppercorn, fresh thyme and a hint of tobacco overwhelm the senses while preparing your palate to dive into intense flavors of boysenberry, juniper, ripened black fruit and smoked meat. This earth-driven wine is polished, supple and silky, with plush fruit and soft contours. With a limited case production, we encourage you to take the plunge with this wholly dry red and indulge your senses before it’s too late.
Pairing chocolate: Rosemary and Black Pepper Truffle (dome shaped)
