    Cobb Pinot Noir Emmaline Ann Vineyard 2006

    • Tasting Notes

      Winemaker's notes: Dark ruby color. Flavors and aromas of cherry-plum, raspberry, citrus, cranberry, and truffle; minerals and traces of clove, chocolate, and hazelnut. Has lovely finesse with clear acidity. A very complex and age-worthy wine.

    • The Vineyard

      Emmaline Vineyard ("-line" rhymes with "vine") is at the western margin of Sebastopol, California, very much influenced by the Pacific Ocean further to the west. The two Dijon varieties planted there are growing in Goldridge sandy loam, and like our other vineyards, produce about two tons per acre. However, the combination of the pinot noir varieties and the terroir of this small vineyard result in pinot noir wines that are characteristically delicate, beautifully complex, and with relatively low levels of alcohol.

      Not only was the fruit quality in 2006 nearly perfect, all components of ripeness and flavor came together at a relatively low sugar level. This resulted in a lower alcohol pinot noir with complexity and finesse.

      Dan Berger’s Vintage Experiences
      Issue 23, July 16, 2009
      “Exceptional”
      “Faintly earthy notes add depth to cherry, dried roses, and a note of spice. Silky yet still crisp. A subtler wine with only 12.8% alcohol and a 3.3 pH. Limited amounts left of [this] extraordinary wine.”

      Decanter Magazine - February 2019
      by Matthew Luczy - Wine Director of Mélisse Restaurant in Santa Monica, California

      This was the first bottling from the Emmaline Ann vineyard, which tends to produce a more delicate and silky wine compared to Coastlands. The wine spent 16 months in French oak, 30% new. At first pour, the nose is loaded with aromas of white chocolate, cocoa powder and malt. Over several hours the wine became sappy, dense, and fruit-driven. It's a truly multi-faceted wine, and a favourite from this tasting. 166 cases produced.
