2017 Rivers-Marie Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1419132 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark One of the highlights in this lineup, the 2017 Pinot Noir (Anderson Valley) is absolutely gorgeous. Bright and floral, with terrific fruit presence and exceptional quality, the 2017 is positively stellar. The purity of the flavors is simply striking. Bright red cherry, lavender, rose petal and spice all race out of the glass in this stunningly beautiful wine. The Anderson Valley Pinot is sourced entirely from the Bearwallow Vineyard, which belongs to Kevin Harvey of Rhys. I am not sure how sustainable buying this level of fruit is for an appellation-level wine. The bottom line is that this is a tremendous value for the consumer. Buy it while you can.

Outer quote mark Moving to the Pinot Noirs, the 2017 Pinot Noir Anderson Valley is a smoking value that’s all from Dijon clones and spent 10 months in neutral oak. There are only 160 cases made, but it has classic savory red and black fruits, wood smoke, and baking spice aromas and flavors, medium to full body, ripe tannins, and nicely integrated acidity. It shines for its complexity and balance and has classic Anderson Valley spice and savoriness. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

Outer quote mark Aged 10 months in neutral oak, the medium ruby colored 2017 Pinot Noir Anderson Valley has a bright nose of warm cranberry sauce, cinnamon stick and orange peel with crushed red and black cherries and hints of blue fruits and underbrush. It's light to medium-bodied and silky with great concentration, a soft texture and seamless freshness on the long, spiced finish. (EB) Inner quote mark (12/2019)
