2013 COBB Rice-Spivak Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

12.5% alc., 450 cases, $70. From a 6-acre vineyard near Sebastopol. Dijon clones and Swan selection planted in Goldridge sandy loam. Aged 22 months in French oak barrels, 35% new. · Moderately light cherry red color in the glass. A classy, feminine wine offering aromas of red cherry pie glaze, rose petal, spice and a woodsy compliment. Silky and delicate on the palate, with flavors of red cherry, strawberry, cranberry and piquant spice notes typical of this vineyard. Very elegant, with suave tannins, a deft touch of oak, tart acidity, and a lovely finish filled with cherry, spice and sandalwood goodness. Score: 92. Reviewed November 22, 2015
