This 2-acre vineyard overlooks the Freestone Valley near Occidental, north of San Francisco in western Sonoma County. The soils are sandy loams typical of the ridge tops of this portion of western Sonoma County. Its mix of Dijon 667, 115, and 828 pinot noir varieties, and its west-facing slope, combine to produce a distinctive, complex, and elegant coastal Sonoma County pinot noir.
Jack Hill Vineyard had a long growing season, which produced a modest harvest of less than two tons per acre. This, combined with a long, mild ripening period resulted a worthy addition to the Cobb lineup.
