Winemaker Notes

Like its Sonoma Coast Pinot sibling, Riddle Vineyard provides the backbone.  That vineyard is represented here by green apple skin but then there’s 2 barrels of Platt (hint of botrytized citrus fruit), 1 barrel of Bearwallow (a banana like tropical-ness) and one 30 gallon stainless torpedo of Thieriot (lemon meringue).  All of that sounds really good reading it back but the wine is even better.  This doesn’t feel like an appellation wine.  Like some of the single vineyard wines, there is a vintage inspired reduction that offers white chocolate complemented by a flinty, savory mix of pear, mint and chamomile tea.

About Rivers-Marie Winery

Single variety wines made to reflect the vineyard & vintage from which they came. Owned by Thomas Rivers Brown & Genevieve Marie Welsh.
