Reviews For This Wine

(from declassified fruit from Thomas Brown's Sonoma Coast sites): Good medium red. Complex, rather Burgungian aromas of strawberry, raspberry, rose petal and earth, with hints of smoke and sandalwood. At once silky and juicy in the mouth, with enticing red fruit flavors framed by ripe acidity and complicated by smoke and earth. This rather delicate pinot finishes with suave tannins and good grip. A steal at the price.

The 2010 Pinot Noir is a ridiculous wine for the money. A burst of dark red fruit, flowers, spices and licorice are some of the notes that burst from the glass in this juicy, totally enjoyable Pinot. This is one of the very finest Pinots being made anywhere in the world at this price point. Kudos to Thomas Rivers Brown for making a delicious Pinot at a very fair and friendly price.

About This Producer


"Perhaps the finest California pinot I have ever had the pleasure of tasting," says Allen Meadows in 2006. And that was enough for Rivers Marie to catch fire throughout an ever-increasing cult of Pinotphiles.

However, the story of Rivers-Marie begins with Thomas Brown, a native of South Carolina who caught the wine bug travelling through Europe as a twenty-something. He found his way to Napa Valley and learned under the tutelage of Ehren Jordan at Turley Wine Cellars. Years later, after becoming a consulting winemaker for more than a dozen wineries, Brown was connected with Scott Zeller, owner of Summa vineyard, and subsequently asked if he wanted some fruit.

From there, Thomas Rivers Brown and his wife, Genevieve Marie Welsh took advantage of their golden opportunity to make awesome Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. In the debut vintage of 2002, Summa vineyard was Brown's only source of Pinot Noir, but he soon expanded to other vineyards near Occidental, including Occidental Ridge. Now, in addition to producing some of the most sought-after and critically acclaimed Pinot Noir, the pair also produces Sonoma Coast Chardonnay and Howell Mountain Cabernet.
