The six acre Rice-Spivak Vineyard Pinot Noir is located south of the town of Sebastopol. Vines are set on Goldridge sandy loam along with volcanic ash.This starts off with bright aromas of rose petal with blood orange rind, smoke, red cherry preserves and guava puree. The aromatic range is simply gorgeous here. On the palate, the wine reveals a silky mouthfeel and wonderful minerality. With gobs of mouth-watering acidity, red and dark fruits mingle with spicy undertones. Highly complex and downright delicious, this will cellar well for a decade or more. Drink 2019-2030- 93

What a lovely wine from my talented friend. Glad I forgot about this bottle for a few years. Subtle fruit and spice with a medium full mouth feel and lingering finish.

My favorite bottling of LaRue. Supple, smooth, restrained fruit, earth, spice and wild mushroom. #larue

From my best friend, Katy Wilson. If you haven't tried her limited produced wine, go find a bottle.
