Re: Rivers-Marie 100pts

Wow, 17th vintage for me, hard to believe (though I think I missed one somewhere along the way due to traveling). One bottle of Platt. Given the limited qty, I'm ok with that. Ordered some of everything, really looking forward to the '18s!

For someone who's never tasted RM, what are the highlights of this release aside from the 100 pointer which I won't be allocated anyway?
The Summa, Summa OV and the Sonoma Coast are automatic buys for me.

More V Madrone. Grabbed my first, a mag of 2010.
I hope you enjoy my bottle! j/k. As soon as it popped up I added to cart and went to checkout, but it was already gone.
2009 mag up for you now, I'll leave this one for you :)

They do age nicely, and since you're buying a case :-) you can follow its development over the next 10-15 years.

I don't think the urgency to order is going to be the normal going forward but I may be wrong. I think it is more because of the very low yields on this vintage: 2015 was a year that was marked by uncommonly low yields. By most vineyard manager’s standards, we always have low yields.
