2012 COBB Rice-Spivak Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

12.5% alc., 225 cases, Magnum. · Light garnet color in the glass. Complex nose replete with aromas of red cherry, spice, burnt tobacco, forest floor accompanied by some oak-driven vanilla and espresso. Light to mid-weight in style offering juicy flavors of red cherry, red raspberry, baking spices, and the slightest herbaceous tone. Elegant in character with gossamer tannins and a slightly tart red cherry finish that has good length. Still enjoyable when tasted the following day from a previously opened bottle indicating significantly more life ahead. Score: 94. Reviewed August 1, 2021
