Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Rice-Spivak Vineyard sits south of the town of Sebastopol, on the northern edge of the Petaluma Wind Gap. It only takes standing in this vineyard once during a typical summer afternoon to understand what makes it special. While it might be quite hot just a few miles in either direction, Rice-Spivak is in a 10-15 degrees pocket where the cool sunlight allows for a different and unique type of phenol development. The soils at Rice-Spivak are mostly typical of the region, exhibiting qualities of Goldridge loam series, but also present is volcanic ash sprinkled through the soil substructure. In addition, the vineyard is north-facing which plays a significant role in the type of deep flavor development realized in the vineyard.
Winemaker Notes
The 2015 Rice-Spivak is extremely energetic, nuanced, and focused. On the nose, the wine jumps from the glass with aromas of macerated dark cherries, flowers, and spice. The wine is a kaleidoscope of mixed, tart wild berries in the mouth with side notes of fresh, wild porcini mushrooms. The finish is full of fine, mouthwatering structure making these bottles empty quickly.
