2012 Rivers-Marie Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

Pop and pour and right out of the bottle there was a little too much cherry for me. Lollipop was the first thing that came to mind. It settled down a bit during dinner, but cherry was still the overwhelming smell and taste. I was surprised given all the good community and pro reviews. Maybe bottle variation? Will see how the other bottles drink.

Aromatic from the start. Cherry, some orange and pine. Nice from a textural standpoint. As good as expected from the producer, but something late in the palate and finish that keeps it from the level of the better RM Pinots. 89-90. Drink now or hold.

Think this is a victim of my expectations. I keep waiting to be blown away by a TRB cabernet and it just hasn't happened yet although I haven't tried any single vineyards yet. Good, of course, but not anything that distinguishable from many other good 90 pt cabs. Price is reasonable (nowadays anyway) so not complaining as much as asking what I seem to be missing. These may just lack a touch of the earthiness that I prefer

Been a while since I opened up regular Summa. Opened yesterday, this has enjoyed a day of air and it's worth noting here that when first opened, the wine was a bit hollow and didn't have much of a finish but with air last night, by middle of dinner it had come around and it does fine so today, too. When cooler, it reminds me a lot of cranberry and then as it warms, it shows pomegranate, classic RM orange rind/citrus, with the finish filling in with spice and cherry hard candy note, and a distinct tartness. Very interesting showing for what I would expect to be a riper vintage and resulting volume but this is kind of coiled, exhibiting some youth. It's got the RM touch here but it's gonna show young, at least it does for me.

Beautiful wine. Complex nose, well-balanced, delicious wine. Notes of almond paste/ marzipan, subtle vanilla, minimal oak. There might be rosemary? Burgundian in style.

For the price this is a 93-94....really good qpr and really happy with my first rivers marie (can't wait for the cabs). Creme brule (sp?) and lemon. Packs some complexity and lots of flavor for the price. Love the smell.

Pretty similar taste profile to last bottle (soft tart red fruits, blood orange a little spice on the finish) but just not as wowed for whatever reason this time. Enjoyable but not remarkable.

Opulent and slightly jammy, this is all about forward, ripe black fruit with subtle spice and background structure. Good now, but I'd expect it better and more nuanced in a few years.

Medium ruby color. Explosive nose of cherry and raspberry with a touch of orange blossom. The palate has excellent fruit - cherry and raspberry as well as apricot and ample mineral notes. Initially, the acidity is prickly in this medium-bodied wine, but with air, it marries well with the fruit. The finish is long with ripe raspberry and mineral. Overall, this is an excellent, ripe pinot that reminds me of a Kosta Browne with a little less body and a little more acidity.

This is a really outstanding Cali pinot without the characteristics that weaken the breed, so to speak. No Cali pinot fiunk, which I dislike. Clean and sharp with excellent purity of fruit. Good balance. Moderate cherry fruit - neither tart nor sweet but nicely balanced in the middle. I believe the R-M pinots have improved dramatically over the years. I had some bad experiences with the R-M pinots during the middle of the last decade but all of the ones I have had recently were outstanding. Perhaps it was my bad luck. Perhaps TRB is just perfecting his pinot craft to go with his outstanding cabernet craft.

Wonderful floral nose. Red fruits and floral accents on the palate. Very light for a Napa Cab. Perhaps due to the vintage. It was delicious and a different style (in a good way) than all of the other heavy hitters we drank tonight (Colgin, Corra, Maybach).

Ripe, red-fruit driven Pinot with a bit of orange peel and cinnamon. The alcohol seems a bit more obvious than before, but this is still enjoyable given the wealth of buffering fruit. Not subtle, or complex, but fun.
