2006 Cobb Pinot Noir Rice Spivek Sonoma Coast
"Deep red. Intensely floral nose offers a compelling set of bright red berry scents, along with fresh flowers, orange and minerals. Spicy, sharply focused strawberry and raspberry flavors are impressively pure and surprisingly concentrated, putting on weight with air. Finishes with excellent lift and sweetness, with the raspberry quality echoing."
"This is also really admirably fresh and expressive and while clearly ripe, there is no sense of over ripeness or alcohol showing through on the nose and with a bit more aromatic depth than the Coastlands. The medium plus weight flavors are rich, forward and mouth filling with a touch more volume as well as slightly riper phenolics that culminate in a lush but focused finish. This is lovely and worth a look." -90 Points - Allen Meadows - The Burghound
