    Cobb Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard 2002

    • Tasting Notes

      This was Cobb Wines' second release.

      Winemaker’s notes: Opens with bright fruity aromas and flavors of cherry, berry, white pepper, and spice. After a while, black cherry, plum, and mineral flavors come forward. Although quite similar to the 2001 Coastlands, it has even more concentrated mid-palate structure. The wine has a smooth, silky texture, deep ruby color, and a long finish.

    • The Vineyard

      Coastlands Vineyard, owned and farmed by the Cobb family, is the original planting of Cobb Wines and represents some of the oldest pinot noir vines on the Sonoma Coast. This 15-acre vineyard has an elevation of 900 to 1,200 feet, and sits on a ridge that overlooks the Pacific Ocean four miles to the west. The varieties of pinot noir at Coastlands include Pommard, Martini, Wadenswil, and Mt. Eden.

    • Accolades

      This wine was awarded first place among 32 pinot noirs at “In Pinot Veritas” tasting in France. Wines tasted were from Burgundy, North America, and elsewhere internationally. The tasting was organized in Spring 2004 by Arnaud Orsel des Sagets of Tonnellerie Francois Freres, one of the world’s most respected producers of wine barrels.

      by Matthew Luczy - Wine Director of Mélisse Restaurant in Santa Monica, California
      The second wine made at Cobb and, like the 2001, it comes from what is now called the 'Diane Cobb' block. It spent 15 months in French oak, 50% new, and 202 cases were produced. Bursting from the glass, this is a more savoury and energetic expression of Coastlands, with aromas of pine sap and oiled leather followed by flavours of pomegranate and rhubarb. Ross Cobb explained that this wine was somewhat 'bretty' in its youth, the remnants of which were subtly apparent but not at all off-putting. Poured from magnum.
