Cobb Rice Spivak Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
This is a beautifully made wine, fully able to capture the beauty of coastal influence in a great vintage. Spicy and floral, with a delicate entry, this has nuanced and entangled elements of wild raspberry, lavender, Asian spice and foraged mushroom. A stemmy earthy undercurrent adds energy and continued freshness on the long-lasting finish of forest.
The 2016 Pinot Noir Rice Spivak Vineyard is pale ruby in the glass and has a pretty nose of violet and lilac with pipe tobacco, pink peppercorn, charcuterie and savory herbs plus a hint of bay leaf. The palate is light to medium-bodied, smooth and silky on entry, then evolving with savory character and firm structuring tannins, finishing very long and layered. 200 cases produced.
