From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown and his wife Genevieve Marie Welsh are the duo behind the impressive Rivers-Marie wines. Brown is one of this generation’s most exciting young winemakers. His early work with Helen Turley and his first consulting clients, including Schrader, is well-known, but what is less well-known is the number of other winemakers whom he has inspired, directly and indirectly. Brown’s winemaking is deeply influenced by his knowledge and passion for the historic California Cabernets and Pinots of decades past, and the great reds of Burgundy and Piedmont, a perspective that is not too common among younger winemakers. " (12/2011) According to the winemaker's notes, they were excited that the 2009 "Silver Eagle" showed a bit of reduction: "The last bottle we opened we decanted, returned to bottle, left on the kitchen counter and drank 24 hours later. It finally had a lot to say... The palate ranges from high-toned early to sappy in the middle with a weight that belies the youth of the vineyard. It's more of a purple fruited wine with notes of plums, currants, barrel spice and white flowers."
