Re: Rivers-Marie ‘19 Pinot Release

Sorry for creating the confusion, I was just saying that after all of the recommendations I received from WB members re: Occidental PN I decided to pull the trigger on one of each of their bottlings. Still waiting until the 19th for the RM allocation!

Re: Rivers-Marie ‘19 Pinot Release

I just caved in and pulled the trigger on 1 of each of the 4 Occidental offerings. My palate is very in line with AG so those scores gave me too much fomo... Shipping is no joke though $54 for 4 bottles to NYC!

Re: Rivers-Marie ‘19 Pinot Release

I keep going back and forth, and I want to buy more PN, I find it that sometimes I don't have the right wine to pair a meal (I'm trying to drink wine with food more and more) and I have too much Napa Cab, Bordeaux and Italian (Super Tuscan IGT, BdM, some Barolo/Barbaresco) but I haven't been opening...
