Tucked into a hillside, the Riker Vineyard is exposed to the shortest daylight of any of the vineyards we source from. On the nose you’ll find, red raspberry sauce drizzled over fresh coffee cake followed by distinct aromas of anise and fresh nutmeg. It’s chewy and intense with crisp, vibrant acidity that amplifies the wine giving it an almost savory sensation finishing with notes of wild dried blueberries. Drink now through 2020.

Vintage: 2013

Overall the 2013 vintage was a grand slam and the best I’ve seen in 15 years. Temperatures were never too extreme and here in Amador County, we rarely saw days over 100F. As is typical, we continued to experience the dramatic diurnal temperature swings in the evenings, where nighttime lows dipped into the upper 40F’s providing the perfect conditions for optimal acid development. Grapes ripened evenly and the colors, tannins, and overall flavor matrix across all varieties was stunning. Veraison occurred a few weeks early, which allowed the grapes an exceptional amount of hang time enabling them to develop excellence in every facet. The resulting wines from this vintage are deep and concentrated, and I am confident they will be enjoyed for years to come.
