Rivers-Marie

Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Love everything from Rivers-Marie. Distinctive style emphasizing purity of fruit and elegance. Fruit is from parcels on the edge of the Bearwallow vineyard. Brambly red and purple fruit with notes of white flower, white pepper, and a touch of eucalyptus. Complex and elegant. Suggest cellaring for 5 -7 years to get the full experience. 2018 vintage on Mar 26, 2020 — 6 days ago

Estate Grown The Narrows Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Sourced from this great Anderson Valley vineyard, this shows lovely damp soil with huckleberry compote and shades of cinnamon infused red cherry aromatics that take shape in the glass. The balance of the wine is really good as medium to full-bodied red and dark fruit flavors provide a lasting effect. While slightly less complex than the 2017 ‘Confluence Vineyard’ bottling, it is downright delicious to savor in its youth. Drink 2020-2030- 92 — 13 days ago

Drank well upon opening but it really blossomed after 30 mins...wow. It’s in a very good window now and can hold it you would like. But why? — 13 days ago

Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Medium ruby color. Aromas of a fresh cut cedar, dried flowers and red fruit. Great flavors of cranberries, raspberries and red plums. Slightly rustic structure with a solid tannic core and great acidity. A long lingering finish of red fruit and cinnamon. A really nice wine. — 3 days ago

I purchased this bottle at the tasting room in Anderson Valley. If you ever get a chance this is a must stop! The tasting room is on an old apple farm. The building must be historic.
Incredible CA Pinot at a perfect age. Subtle rose red in color with bursting aromatics of oolong tea, dried plum, anise and underbrush. Defines its AVA beautifully. A special bottle for sure
So thoughtfully made. It is elegant and nuanced. This is one of the finest New world Pinots I have tried in years. Stylistically reminds me of burgundy but to compare to another CA producer, anthill comes to mind. Awesome!!!!!!!!

That’s a good question. I normally don’t drink these this young, but Galloni’s note indicated that it was best to drink it young. I agree and I have one more bottle and I don’t plan to hold it long.

Domaine Anderson

Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2014

I may have a hard time writing a non-biased review—kinda like if I was reviewing a Nine Inch Nails album: FANGIRL. but I think I’m not alone. Is Domaine Anderson my Trent Reznor? Appropriate as for all the freshness and acid Anderson Valley lets in this wine has a heady darkness. It will take you down. It will take you. Interpret that however you will but all levels Domaine Anderson will price fabulous conversationalists. — 21 days ago

@Severn Goodwin i mean Trent Reznor is relevant forevvvvvvvwer tho. You don’t agree?

I'm not in disagreement, I still remember when the first album dropped. Just saying being a fangirl is noting your experience level in this world, as we're likely close to the same vintage.
