    Cobb Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard 2009

    • The Vineyard

      Coastlands Vineyard is the original planting of Cobb Wines, and contains some of the oldest (20-year-old) pinot noir vines on the Sonoma Coast. This 15-acre vineyard has elevations ranging from 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. The extreme, marine-influenced weather of Coastlands produces outstanding pinot noir fruit. Periods of spring rain or heavy fog can cause the vineyard’s yields to be very low, and in some years virtually nonexistent.  295 cases made.

    • Accolades

      Winemaker’s notes: After the 2007 vintage, it was hard to imagine that Mother Nature could do better on the Sonoma Coast from a quality standpoint - then along came 2009. While 2009 was a heartbreaker in terms of crop size (less than 1 ton per acre at Coastlands), the fruit was spectacular. This is a beautifully aromatic wine with dark raspberry and cherry compote aromas, as well as lovely layers of spearmint, orange zest, red plum, sandalwood, leather, tobacco, dried herbs and white pepper. Though the tannins are full, the mouthfeel is broad and soft, with bright lively acidity.

      Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar. Josh Raynolds. " Ruby-red. Explosively perfumed bouquet evokes candied red fruits, allspice, star anise and potpourri, with a bright mineral quality building with air. Lively and focused on the palate, offering sappy raspberry and cherry flavors and a silky, seamless texture. The floral quality comes on strong on the delineated, very persistent finish." 93 Points.
