  • Cobb Riesling Vonarburg Vineyard 2018 -- 750ml


    Cobb Riesling Vonarburg Vineyard 2018

    • Tasting Notes

      We picked the grapes for this wine at 22.5º Brix with 35% intentional botrytis. The result is a dry, Trocken-style Riesling where the residual sugar is more of a flowing textural element than a perceptible taste. Fermented cool in stainless steel, it is also the kind of beautifully structured, mineral-driven Riesling that will age gracefully for decades. We made just 75 cases of this dazzling wine, which comes in at a lithe and lively 12.5% alcohol.

      As someone who appreciates my style of Pinot Noir, I think you will love this wine. From its enticing aromas of white flowers, lychee, and lime zest to its crisp citrus entry and terroir-inspired notes of granite and wet slate, this is the kind of sophisticated and age-worthy dry Riesling I’ve always aspired to make.

    • The Vineyard

      Like Pinot Noir, great Rieslings seem to channel the essence of their vineyards with a beauty and precision that can be stirring. So in 2016, when my longtime friend Norm Kobler asked if I wanted to make a Riesling from his family’s famed Vonarburg Vineyard in the cool “deep end” of the Anderson Valley, I jumped at the chance. 

      Norm’s parents were pioneers in the Anderson Valley, founding Lazy Creek Vineyards in 1972. Their 45 years of growing Riesling, Gewurztraminer and other varieties helped to build Mendocino’s reputation for producing North America’s most exceptional aromatic white grapes. One of the coolest vineyards in the valley, Vonarburg is lovingly farmed by Norm, and owned by his mom, Theresia.
