Producer Notes

"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.

(13.8% alcohol; from the northeast corner of Occidental, which Thomas Brown described as his warmest site in vintage 2011): Good medium red. Aromas of plum, mocha, sassafras and earth, with aeration bringing higher-pitched notes of cherry and raspberry. Classic Sonoma Coast flavors of cranberry, pomegranate, sassafras and forest floor are given added punch by a hint of blood orange. The mouthwatering finish shows noteworthy thrust and persistence. A terrific value in Sonoma Coast pinot noir.

Drink Dates 2013-2019

The 2011 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) doesn't suffer at all from being placed right in the middle of the vineyard designates. If anything, that just highlights what a fabulous wine it is! Juicy dark cherries, flowers, mint tobacco and sweet spies all come to life in a Pinot that is racy, sexy and just plain gorgeous. There is a lot to like ' no, love ' in this deeply expressive, Pinot Noir. For the money, Rivers Marie's Sonoma Coast Pinot is one of the best values in domestic wine. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019.
