  • Cobb Pinot Noir Rice Spivak Vineyard 2017 -- 750ml



    Cobb Pinot Noir Rice Spivak Vineyard 2017

    • Tasting Notes

      “The 2017 Rice Spivak displays aromas of red cherries, birch and dried cardamom. The texture is racy and succulent at first, and expands greatly on the palate after some time in the glass. The finish shows notes of pomegranate purée, green peppercorns and potpourri. A pretty and lifted iteration of the Rice-Spivak site.”
      Matthew Luczy, Wine Director at Mélisse Santa Monica

    • The Vineyard

      Cobb has been working with this exceptional vineyard since 2003, and have made a single-vineyard wine from its coveted fruit since 2006. We guide all the farming at Rice-Spivak, and have first pick of the grapes we want to work with. People are often surprised to learn that this is our most inland vineyard. Even so, at just six miles from the ocean it is still very much influenced by the marine climate. Made from a combination of Swan and Dijon Noir plantings grown in unique volcanic soils, this is always one of our most profoundly aromatic wines, making it delightful before the first sip is even taken.

    • Accolades

      “Ross Cobb's 2017 Pinot Noir Rice-Spivak Vineyard is light on its feet, perfumed and gracious. Crushed red berries, wild flowers, cinnamon and citrus all perk up this ethereal, mid-weight Pinot. The 50% whole clusters add aromatic presence and savoriness without overpowering the wine. I very much like the sense of energy here. This is such an elegant Pinot."
      Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media January 2020 - 96 Points
