Cobb Pinot Noir Diane Cobb: Coastlands Vineyard 2014 750ml
My family takes great pride in the fact that Coastlands was one of the first Pinot Noir vineyards on the far Sonoma Coast. More than just being one of the pioneering vineyards, under the care of my late mother, Diane, a special section of Coastlands was also used as a nursery to explore how different clones of Pinot Noir fared in the extreme conditions of the coast. Featuring vines planted in 1989 and 1996, our Diane Cobb block includes more than 20 clones of Pinot. Made from 18 of these clones, our 2014 Diane Cobb Pinot Noir is the most complex wine we make, mingling dazzling layers of fruit and spice, as well as fascinating savory elements. This is a particularly stunning vintage of Diane Cobb, and my personal favorite since the 2007 growing season. Dry farmed and sustainable for 20 years.
Winemaker's notes: Rich raspberry and cherry fruit aromas, with subtle spicy bay laurel and white pepper notes. Takes 2-3 hours to open up, yielding sappy notes and rich, broad tannins, reflective of these 28-year-old vines. Highly recommended for your long-term cellar program.
