Average critic rating : 97.0 points



The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Panek Vineyard (14.4% alcohol) was aged in 70% new oak. Made from four Cabernet clones (Clones 169, 7, 4 and 6), it comes from a vineyard on the valley floor at the end of the Aida Vineyard that Vineyard 29 has made famous. Copious notes of earth, charcoal embers, wet gravel, garrigue, blackberry and blackcurrants are accompanied by a long, deep wine with sweet tannins, a fabulous mouthfeel, an opulent, velvety texture, and tremendous length as well as richness. Drink it over the next two decades. ||Rivers-Marie takes its name from Thomas Rivers Brown, the famous wine consultant, and Genevieve Marie Welsh, who started this operation in 2002. These are the first wines I have tasted from this estate. They also produce some Pinot Noirs from Sonoma which I will taste later this year. All these cuvées reflect brilliant winemaking and viticultural work. eRobertParker.com.October, 2014
