Tasting notes for the 2018 Napa Valley Rosé of Pinot Noir
A beautiful light color of Rosé reminiscent of an early garden pink rose. Dried cranberries, roses and citrus create its delicate nose.  From the glass to your palate the wine is bright fresh richness of cranberries and soft spices. The Cultivar 2018 Rosé will be the perfect match for springtime brunch, summer barbecues, on the boat, beach, pool or picnic.

A Special Dinner Among Friends

Almost 10 years ago to the date, Riva Cucina hosted their first winemaker dinner at Riva Cucina with our dear friends, Julien and Elan Fayard. It was a special night indeed, as the four of us were just starting our new ventures. We now have the wonderful opportunity to bring this amazing team together again for another first winemaker dinner, this time at the newly-opened Marina wine bar, Cultivar San Francisco. Massi will be guest chef, pairing his cuisine with Julien's award-winning wines.

We hope you can join us for a wonderful evening, as we celebrate the opening of Cultivar SF and the wines of Julien Fayard.

Cultivar Napa Valley Rose Wins Gold Medal

Cultivar 2013 Napa Valley Rose Wins Gold Medal from The Fifty Best

Last year we released our first Cultivar Rose--a Rose inspired by those from Southern France and so popular it sold out within months of its release. With its balance and smoothness, perfect alone or paired with a variety of foods, it's easy to see why it's so loved. 

We're excited to announce that The Fifty Best awarded our 2013 Cultivar Napa Valley Rose with a Gold Medal in a blind-tasting of recent Roses from France, Spain, Portugal, and the United States.

The Fifty Best, an award-winning online guide to fine living featuring rated lists and tasting awards based on a panel of wine/spirit professionals and connoisseurs, assembled a panel of 18 pre-qualified judges. The order in which the wines were sampled was determined beforehand by lottery. Each wine was served well chilled and poured into fresh glasses from sealed bottles. Judges award scores between 1 and 5, with 5 as the best and noted their impressions of each wine on score sheets. Scores were tallied and medals awarded.

First some bad news. While we would love for you try our award-winning wine for yourself, we sold out of it in 2014. Now the good news. We just released our 2014 Cultivar Napa Valley Rose, a blend of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache, and Sauvignon Blanc. Unlike our 2013 which had a sweet finish, the 2014 release has a tart, dry, mineral finish. Grab your bottles today at $17 or stock up with a cases at $173.40 ($163.20 for Cultivar Wine Club members). You wouldn't want to miss out again!
