    September 10, 2022 - This continues to impress. Poured somewhat cloudy, it had a tart cherry and minerally nose. Medium bodied; no sense of alcohol/heat; flavors of tart cherry with some minerals and stone on the finish.

    July 5, 2022 - elegant wine dryer than many Cali pinot. In a very good place.

    May 23, 2022 - Still drinking beautifully! No sign of even secondary flavors, this pinot pours dark with edges of ruby. It’s medium-bodied, with a raspberry/cherry nose. That essence continues on the palate - really tasty - with some tart acidity, citrus, and hint of spice bringing up the finish. Drank nearly the same on day two also.

    May 29, 2021 - First well aged TRB Rivers Marie. When you understand that TRB wines are a long hold, its not much of stretch to know it is can be a easy guess as who made this wine. Especially, after nine years in bottle.

    The extraction level is all TRB. It’s not Belle Glos Cabernet/Pinot Noir but not Ferren or Williams Selyem. In between & closer to WS. Dark, ripe fruits of; blackberries, black raspberries, black plums, dark cherries, raspberries, overtones of blue fruits, smoked meats, incense, dark spice with heat, alcohol fume, stones, dry crushed limestone, dry twigs, menthol, eucalyptus, mint, fresh; dark, red, blue flowers laid in a field of violets. Acidity is like a rain shower with balance & polish for days.

    For my palate, this still needs time. Although, it very approachable for most.
