Rivers-Marie Summa Old Vines Pinot Noir 2012

$74.99

93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "Sweet tobacco, sage, rosemary and dried cherries all waft from the glass in the 2012 Pinot Noir Summa Old Vines. The Summa Old Vines is lifted, intensely aromatic and precise, but also a bit diffuse and ethereal. Orange peel, star anise and mint all add an element of exoticism. Here, too, the savory notes suggest whole clusters, but the fruit was totally destemmed. In 2012, this fruit was brought in on October 15, exceedingly late for Pinot, even on the coast. The 100% new barrels are beautifully integrated throughout."

White strawberries, raspberry skins, clove, violets. So much complexity with perfectly balanced texture and acidity. Expertly crafted. No need to open anytime soon.

Tangy raspberry cranberry goodness with a sour cherry kicker. Cloudy and velvety.

Cloudy, claret color. Cranberry, citrus, forest floor. Prototypical TRB Pinot. Lingering with deep fruit and baking spices. Unique and very enjoyable.

2012 Vintage. Just a peek at what this wine will be. Needs lots of time. Be patient.

Tons going in here. Great concentration and complexity. Saving my last bottle for 5-10 years
