Our current 2017 trade releases:


Cobb Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard 2013 750ml

The Vineyard

In 2013, we took the two blocks that usually make up our Coastlands Vineyard Pinot Noir and bottled them as our Old Firs Block and 1906 Block Pinot Noirs. The Old Firs Block was named one of "100 Best Wines of the Year" and earned 95 points from Wine & Spirits, and the 1906 Block received 93 points and was highlighted when Wine & Spirits honored Cobb Wines as one of the "Top 100 Wineries of 2015." As fantastic as those block wines were, in 2013, we thought that the blocks were even better blended together. Adding to this wine’s allure, 30 months of French oak aging has ensured that it is beautifully concentrated and complex.

Tasting Notes

Winemaker’s notes: Beautiful coastal aromas of pine and moist forest floor add nuance to notes of cherry and orange spice tea. On the palate, crisp acidity and seamless tannins from 30 months of French oak aging carry this wine to a smooth finish with hints of strawberry and rosewater.

Cobb Pinot Noir Rice-Spivak Vineyard 2013 750ml

The Vineyard

Though the six-acre Rice-Spivak Vineyard is our most inland winegrowing site (even though it’s just six miles from the Pacific), its combination of Dijon and Swan Pinot Noir plantings, a northern exposure, and unique volcanic soils produce a profoundly aromatic wine with excellent acidity and earthiness. The 2013 vintage is particularly spicy and compelling, with lovely dark red fruit notes that are both bright and alluring.

Tasting Notes

Winemaker's notes: Lithe and energetic, this is one of those lovely Pinot Noirs that you can experience through its aromas, where layers of Bing cherry and wild raspberry are framed by deeper, more savory undertones. On the palate, fine, delicate tannins meld with a crisp strawberry tartness that accentuates the fresh, precise character of this attractive Pinot Noir.

90+ Points - Vinous - The 2013 Pinot Noir Rice-Spivak Vineyard is a bit more delicate and not as fruit-forward as it can be. Readers should expected an understated, laid-back Pinot that leans more towards restraint than the pliancy that is typical of this site. Sweet red berry and rose petal notes begin to emerge in the glass, but the 2013 remains a touch compact and classically austere in style. My impression is that this fruit may have come in on the early side, as the flavors and textures feel not fully developed. At the same time, these wines have a way of blossoming in bottle. It will be interesting to see if that happens here.

Cobb Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard 1906 Block Pommard 2014

The Vineyard

In 1998, David and Diane Cobb planted two of the classic Pinot Noir clones -- Pommard and Mt. Eden -- on a block just shy of 4-acres within our Coastlands Vineyard. They called it the 1906 Block because the original rancher who worked the land carved the date 1906 into an old oak tree overlooking the block at the time of the great San Francisco earthquake. As these vines have evolved on the rocky, uplifted marine-terraced block, the wines have turned out to be the most dark and concentrated sections of Coastlands. So much so that in 2014 we decided to make two different wines from our 1906 Block, this Pommard clone Pinot, and a Mt. Eden bottling that will be released in the spring. The Pommard section has soft fruit aromas typical of the Pommard clone with crisp, red berry flavors reflective of the wind, fog and salty air of the Pacific Ocean below..

Tasting Notes

Winemaker's notes: This bottling leads with aromas of red rose, lavender, bay leaf. With an extra moment, one finds the deep fruit flavors of blueberry and raspberry rising from the glass.  On the palate, subtle flavors of crisp cherry and red plum, with hints of green tea, flowers and chalky minerality that adds nuance and complexity to the structure.

Cobb Pinot Noir Jack Hill Vineyard 2014 750ml

The Vineyard

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.

Tasting Notes

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.

Technical Notes

285 cases produced. 22 months in barrel. 35% new French oak. 13.6% alcohol.


Cobb Pinot Noir Emmaline Ann Vineyard 2014 750ml

The Vineyard

Year after year, our Cobb Wines Emmaline Ann Pinot Noir is always one of my favorite wines, and this is one of the best that we have ever made. With a southwest exposure and some of the finest soils on the Sonoma Coast, the 3-acre Emmaline Ann Vineyard is a tiny gem.. Because it gets the most fog of any of our vineyards in the Freestone Valley,  it has a nerve and sophistication that I love. At the same time, that cool coastal sunshine that shapes the far Sonoma Coast yields a vibrant wine with pure, lovely layers of fruit.

Tasting Notes

Winemaker's notes: Graceful and thought-provoking, this wine seems to reflect the surroundings of Emmaline Ann Vineyard, with notes of raspberry and cherry fruit, secondary aromas of redwood forest, sweet sage, wild cherry and mushrooms, as well as a hint of ruby red grapefruit. On the palate, zesty orange and tart pomegranate notes are underscored by a racy acidity that carries the red berry flavors to an elegant finish.

Technical Notes

310 cases produced. 22 months in barrel. 30% new French oak. 12.8% alcohol.
