Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

Intense and tannic, compact and concentrated, with dried herb and currant, sage, cedar and tobacco flavors that clamp down on the finish.

After resting for nearly 2 weeks (proud of my self-control) I opened the case to give the 2007 RM Cabernet a whirl. This is awesome...it took a full 6 hours to really strut its stuff but the combination of aromatics, density, balance and finish make this one of the best young cabs I've ever had. Is it primary, of course. But you get a sense of the complexity lurking if you give it enough air. Glad I went long on this as it will surely be fascinating to follow. If it puts on a little weight without lossing balance over the next 2-5 years it will be staggering.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
