 A bargain on this Dry Creek Valley Bordeaux blend by superstar Nick Goldschmidt! Already showing complexity at a young age, with a palate of strawberries, blackberries, graphite, plum, smoke and chocolate. The firm tannins and fresh acidity mean that this will mature and get even better!

"With great styling, a plush interior core and luxurious taste profile, this consumer friendly wine should provide many years of enjoyment. Pair with Shrimp and Grey Poupon mustard, Beef with mushroom Risotta and red wine, or Veal medallions in a blueberry sauce."

I met with Nick Goldschmidt this winter in Napa to sample his new releases including his Royce Red Blend from Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley. 2012 is a gorgeous vintage and this is a very classy and enjoyable wine. Nick is from New Zealand but now calls Sonoma Valley home, he has a wicked sense of humor and it’s always an eventful visit. Nick is particularly proud of this wine as it is named after his oldest son. This Royce hits the ground on all cylinders with bountiful aromas of kirsch, red plum and toasty vanilla oak. It reminds me of the iconic Silver Ghost and its legendary smoothness as this wine is lush and expressive. This Royce rolls with a generous palate of lush fruit including cassis, black raspberry, vanilla oak, coffee and cherries. With great styling, a plush interior core and luxurious taste profile, this consumer friendly wine should provide many years of enjoyment. Pair with Shrimp and Grey Poupon mustard, Beef with mushroom Risotto and red wine, or Veal medallions in a blueberry sauce.

2012 Royce Goldschmidt Dry Creek Valley Red Wine

ROYCE GOLDSCHMIDT Red Wine is a collaborative effort between father and son. Nick Goldschmidt sourced the fruit for this project from a vineyard at his residence. A thirty-year winemaking veteran, Nick’s skill in crafting memorable wines requires growing the right varietal in the right place. This small vineyard at the westernmost edge of Dry Creek produces broad, ripe, and spicy Merlot. Royce, with his bright red hair and warm personality, has assisted his father in producing a most delicious wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Syrah give Royce Red added richness and depth.
