The 2008 Rive Droite Proprietary Red (68.5% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, 7.5% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon; 320 cases produced) offers soaring, complex aromas of barbecue smoke, juicy black currants, chocolate-infused black cherries, mocha, camphor and incense are intense as well as persuasive. This opulent, full-bodied wine possesses good density and abundant complexity. It comes close in quality to the brilliant 2007. The precocious 2008 should continue to offer provocative drinking over the next 12-15 years.

Good deep ruby-red. Sexy aromas of plum, bitter chocolate, violet and licorice pastille: very Right Bank. Then smooth and sweet in the mouth, with lovely restrained sweetness to its black raspberry and licorice flavors. A floral component contributes energy and inner-mouth aromatic lift. Quite plush on the back end, finishing with broad tannins and lovely perfume. A very successful blend with great early appeal: I'd enjoy this over the next seven or eight years before starting on the Proprietary wine, which should surpass it in the long run.
