2016 Banshee Rice-Spivak Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
The 2016 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.
