Ross Cobb's original tasting notes: The aromas are pure and delicate with layers of wild strawberry, black cherry and raspberry. Secondary notes of sage and lavender add sophistication, with firm tannins and a tart cherry acidity indicating a long life.

"Savory like the 2007 but in a wholly different way, more geared toward kombu and orange peel. The 2011 is much softer in structure, without the 2007’s tannic structure. It’s definitely in its prime drinking window now. The most elegant and prettiest of the lineup. The tannins are fully integrated, giving it a soft and silky texture. The finish is all sea salt and nori in the most incredible way. This is a wine I would show others as a textbook example of the complexities and savory deliciousness of coastal California Pinot. While it is of course delicious on its own, it would really shine with an umami rich dish with mushrooms or seaweed to flex its incredible pairing capacity. This is the type of wine I only dream of having in large enough quantities to pour day in and day out in a restaurant."
