    Cobb Pinot Noir Rice-Spivak Vineyard 2013

    • Tasting Notes

      Winemaker's notes: Lithe and energetic, this is one of those lovely Pinot Noirs that you can experience through its aromas, where layers of Bing cherry and wild raspberry are framed by deeper, more savory undertones. On the palate, fine, delicate tannins meld with a crisp strawberry tartness that accentuates the fresh, precise character of this attractive Pinot Noir.

    • The Vineyard

      Though the six-acre Rice-Spivak Vineyard is our most inland winegrowing site (even though it’s just six miles from the Pacific), its combination of Dijon and Swan Pinot Noir plantings, a northern exposure, and unique volcanic soils produce a profoundly aromatic wine with excellent acidity and earthiness. The 2013 vintage is particularly spicy and compelling, with lovely dark red fruit notes that are both bright and alluring.

    • Accolades

      "The 2013 Pinot Noir Rice-Spivak Vineyard is a bit more delicate and not as fruit-forward as it can be. Readers should expected an understated, laid-back Pinot that leans more towards restraint than the pliancy that is typical of this site. Sweet red berry and rose petal notes begin to emerge in the glass, but the 2013 remains a touch compact and classically austere in style. My impression is that this fruit may have come in on the early side, as the flavors and textures feel not fully developed. At the same time, these wines have a way of blossoming in bottle. It will be interesting to see if that happens here."
