2014 Rivers-Marie "Silver Eagle Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (Previously $70)

SKU #1257780 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Pinot Noir Silver Eagle comes from a vineyard owned and managed by the famous Ulises Valdez. It is planted with a Vosne-Romanée clone as well as the Calera clone and Dijon 828. This is by far the most complex and intriguing of these Pinots with a deep ruby/plum, color, a super nose of black raspberries, black cherries, damp earth and forest floor. This is full-bodied, spicy, rich, long and Burgundian with a Grand Cru Côte de Nuit-like personality. Drink it over the next decade. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2016)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A whiff of menthol sits atop the mix of red and dark currant aromas that are trimmed in Asian-style tea nuances. There is once again good volume and mid-palate concentration to the succulent and generous proportioned yet focused middle weight plus flavors, all wrapped in a beautifully complex and persistent finish. This isn't as refined as the Occidental but it's more powerful and while these two wines are rough qualitative equals, their respective characters are almost polar opposites.

K&L Notes

Praise from Robert Parker: "This is the home project of Thomas Rivers Brown and Genevieve Marie Welsh, who started this boutique operation in 2002. In the last few years, they’ve expanded to include Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. I tasted four Pinot Noirs from Rivers-Marie, all of them different and singular...The 2014s look strong, with up-front fruit, but exceptional density, purity, and richness." (10/2015) And from Antonio Galloni: "The Pinot Noirs are the clear highlights in this superb range from proprietors Thomas Rivers Brown and his wife, Genevieve Marie Welsh... The Pinots are made in a middle of the road style that deftly balances fruit intensity, aromatics, and tannin." (1/2016)
