2008 Cobb "Rice Spivak Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1123007 92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright red. Sexy aromas of candied red berries, cherry-cola, anise and fresh bay, with a hint of potpourri that gains strength with air. Juicy, penetrating raspberry and cherry flavors show increasing spiciness and weight as the wine opens in the glass. The finish strongly echoes the raspberry note and lingers with impressive clarity and persistence. This is balanced to age. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A late release, Cobb’s 2008 Pinot Noir Rice-Spivak Vineyard was bottled along with the 2009s, which means it spent a whopping 30 months in barrel, highly unusual for Pinot Noir. Dried red fruits, savory herbs and licorice all waft from the glass. Given the extended time in barrel (indicated on the back label), it isn’t surprising the 2008 shows mellowed nuances in its fruit. Hints of tar, asphalt and licorice all add gravitas on the finish. An exotic and intriguing wine, the Rice-Spivak is another beautiful wine from Ross Cobb. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. Inner quote mark (4/2013)

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A more deeply pitched nose of red berry liqueur and essence of blueberries gives way to rich, delicious and quite supple flavors that are seductively textured, all wrapped in a balanced, long and firmly persistent finish. This is really quite stylish and worth your consideration. Inner quote mark (11/2011)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Light in both color and scent, this is a silken, gentle Pinot with red flavors of strawberries, plums and persimmon. It's finely integrated, ready to pour with pâté de foie. Inner quote mark (8/2011)
