Back in 1989, when Diane and David Cobb planted Coastlands, they were pioneers. There were few vineyards on the far Sonoma Coast, and very few varieties of Pinot Noir that had been proven capable of thriving in the cool coastal conditions. Working with UC Davis, Diane established a nursery block that contained over 20 Pinot Noir varieties. Today, these own-rooted, dry-farmed vines are some of the oldest in the region. Our “Diane Cobb” designate is a co-fermentation of approximately 18-20 different Pinot Noir selections from these cherished vines. Now in its seventh vintage, we used approximately 40% whole clusters to make our 2012 Diane Cobb, resulting in one of the most complex and spicy expressions of this wine ever.
