    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.

    October 22, 2020 - Given its age and year, I was worried about opening it. No concerns. No browning. Great nose with raspberry, cherry, spice, herbs. Seemed slightly sweet on the nose. Loaded with flavors. Raspberry, black cherry, herb, spice, pine needles. Medium bodied with good acidity. Balanced smooth finish. Purchased at released and cellared well. My last bottle, but would be in no hurry to open any remaining bottles. Not really showing any secondary character, but really good and drinks well beyond its price point.

    April 17, 2020 - Decanted, served with dinner, finished later in the evening. Cloudy in the glass the nose just leaps at you with tart red fruit (cranberries, pomegranate, raspberries) and orange peel :). Palate follows nose with some pine needle and soy. Everything is juicy and lush; loads of sunshine and smiles. Terrific value and last of 4. Household favorite CA Pinot producer.

    April 2, 2020 - Damn....this is sexy stuff, especially given the price-point. So much acid on the palate with the hallmark murky red color, tart cranberries, rhubarb and spiced orange peel notes. Finish just lasts and lasts from the acidity pulling on the back of the tongue. Still so juicy and fresher than a recently consumed 2010 Sonoma Coast bottling. Just a hint of soy/balsamic starting to develop in the background. Either at or nearing its apex and, as such, I plan to drink my last bottle sometime here in 2020.
