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.

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.
