2008 Rivers-Marie "Occidental Ridge" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1080702 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep red-ruby. Musky, smoky aromas of ripe strawberry and spices, lifted by a note of orange zest. In a warmer style but with firm acidity giving lift and perfume to the flavors of dark raspberry, violet and licorice. Finishes quite juicy. Brown describes this as a low-pH wine from a warm site. This was the first Pinot vineyard he harvested in 2008, picking in mid-September at 14.3% potential alcohol. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2010)

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A completely different nose speaks of raspberry and red cherry with background hints of cranberry before dissolving seamlessly into supple and somewhat more refined flavors that are supported by dense but fine tannins on the persistent and palate coating finish. This doesn't have the complexity of the Sonoma Coast cuvée, at least not yet but sufficient underlying material is present that it may well develop more in time. Inner quote mark (10/2010)
