    Cobb Pinot Noir Jack Hill Vineyard 2007

    • Tasting Notes

      Ross Cobb's original tasting notes upon release:
      The hillside vineyard displays ripe aromas more common in pinot noir from the Russian River Valley. This Occidental vineyard has fruit aromas of blood orange, cherry cola with a creamy, luscious and spicy impression with lively acidity.

      Evan Hufford, Wine Director and Head Sommelier at SingleThread Farms
      Healdsburg, CA - June 2018

      "The 2007 has an amazing combination of forest floor, maitake mushroom, tart cherry, and a really distinct rose petal floral note. It is beautifully straddling a savory and fruity line at the moment. There’s still a tannic grip, with enough mouth watering acidity to back it up. An extremely interesting wine that challenges the conception of what aged New World Pinot can look like. We open countless bottles of old California Pinot at SingleThread, but this wine strikes me as wholly unique. I’ve never tasted anything quite like it. The combination of earth, mushroom, rose petals and elevated tannins and acidity is very reminiscent of a fine Nebbiolo."

    • The Vineyard

      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.

    • Accolades

      Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar. Josh Raynolds. “Focus On California’s North Coast”. May/June 2009: “Vivid red. Powerful aromas of black raspberry, cherry compote and dried rose. Candied licorice and Asian spices come up with aeration, adding complexity to the deep, sweet red and dark berry flavors. For a rich wine this is impressively lithe, finishing with outstanding clarity and persistent sweetness.” 92 Points
