Cobb Pinot Noir Jack Hill Vineyard 2014 750ml
Planted in 1998, Jack Hill is the steepest site we work with, and one of the coldest. Surrounded by dense oak and fir forests, it is planted to three clones of Pinot Noir on a west-facing slope. Year after year, it delivers one of our most giving and graceful Pinot Noirs, with lovely aromatics and abundant layers of bright berry fruit. In 2014, the combination of a great growing season and wonderfully mature vines resulted in the most expressive Jack Hill Pinot Noir we have ever made. If you enjoyed this wine in the past, the 2014 vintage is a must. If you haven't tried it before, this is a great vintage to start.
Winemaker's notes: This vineyard always yields more red fruit and cherry-cola and spice notes, reminding me of the more overt Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs. But the rugged coastal pine and fir forests impact the bright fruit with lovely coniferous aromas and a richness typical of this west Sonoma Coast vineyard site.
