Lot #735. Rivers Marie Pinot Noir Summa Vineyard Old Vines 2008

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 93 ST.
"Medium red. Red fruits, licorice and spicy oak lifted by orange zest, minerals, mint and a whiff of rhubarb. Densely packed and plump, with a breadth of texture that belies its modest alcohol level. Boasts excellent red berry energy and sap; there's a crushed fruit quality here that reminded me of Chambolle. The long, rising finish is sweet but quite firm, with plenty of fruit tannins to support the 100% new oak treatment. This fascinating and satisfying wine made the Occidental Vineyard wine seem soft by comparison. The vines are planted at 8 by 12 feet, with a huge canopy providing shade and preserving the natural acidity of the fruit." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 10
Provenance: The Mode Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
