Cobb Pinot Noir Rice-Spivak Vineyard 2009 has the aromas of cherry and cola with citrus, mineral graphite and also has incredible aging potential.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 93+
"The 2009 Pinot Noir Rice-Spivak Vineyard emerges from the glass with dark red cherries, flowers, mint, licorice and minerals. This is a tightly wound, more focused Pinot than the Emmaline Ann. Firm yet well-integrated tannins and bright acidity give the wine its focus and drive. Ross Cobb used 20-25% whole clusters here. This is a very, very beautiful wine."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 93
"Bright red. Intense, spice-accented aromas of cherry, redcurrant and rose oil, with a subtle smoky nuance. Juicy, incisive red fruit flavors show excellent clarity and pick up sweetness with air. The bright, nervy finish clings with impressive tenacity and suave florality."
