2006 Rivers-Marie Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast - USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast (1/29/2009)
Opened side by side with a '06 Kutch RRV and a '06 Kosta Browne RRV. Opened and tried and this was shut down tight, no nose nothing in the mouth, poured into a decnater and hoped for the best. Came back two and a half hours later and this was a different wine. Nose was earthy, Mushrooms and forest floor, in the mouth this was very delicate I would a say feminine wine that had layers of soft red fruits, spice, and earth with a great mid palate and a long finsih with a touch of blackpepper. The WOTN for all at the table, I can just imagine what the Summa Old Vines is like. If you are thinking of opening this wine please decante or bury in the back of your cellar for another 2 - 3 years.
This was the cheapest of the wines opened tonight and was the stand out, Way to go TRB!!! (94 pts.)
