    Cobb Pinot Noir Jack Hill Vineyard 2016

    • Tasting Notes

      This vineyard always yields more red fruit and cherry-cola and spice notes, reminiscent of the more overt Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs. But the rugged coastal pine and fir forests impact the bright fruit with lovely coniferous aromas and a richness typical of this west Sonoma Coast vineyard site.

    • The Vineyard

      Planted in 1998, Jack Hill is the steepest site we work with, and one of the coldest. Surrounded by dense oak and fir forests, it is planted to three clones of Pinot Noir on a west-facing slope. Year after year, it delivers one of our most giving and graceful Pinot Noirs, with lovely aromatics and abundant layers of bright berry fruit. In 2015, the combination of wonderfully mature vines and a very small crop resulted in a wildly expressive Jack Hill Pinot Noir.

    • Accolades

      "The Jack Hill Vineyard spans a mere two acres, located in the freestone valley and surrounded by old oak and Douglass Fir trees. The nose takes on wonderfully earthy terroir with red fruits and citrus rind that round out the aromatic profile. On the palate, the wine has a silky mouthfeel and beautiful texture. Powerful and intense, with a surprising viscosity and tension, the wine shows blood orange, forest floor, wet stone and red cherry candy flavors. Sinfully good now, the wine will cellar well for a decade or more." Drink 2019-2033
      Washington Wine Blog, Dr. Owen Bargreen - 94 Points

      "The pale ruby colored 2016 Pinot Noir Jack Hill Vineyard is scented of pomegranate liqueur, Bing cherry and cranberry with exotic spices, lilac, bergamot, wet leaves and earth. Light to medium-bodied, the silky texture segues into firm, grainy tannins, and juicy acidity provides support for the concentrated flavor layers and the long, layered finish. Outstanding."
      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate May 2019 - 95+ Points

      “Ross Cobb's 2016 Jack Hill Vineyard is gorgeous. Soft, pliant and inviting, the 2016 has so much to offer. Bright floral notes meld into a core of sweet red berry fruit in this nuanced, silky Pinot Noir, with floral, blood orange, chalk and mint notes that add invigorating freshness. The 50% whole clusters are impeccably balanced.”
      Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media May 2019 - 93 Points

      "From a cold, steep site, Jack Hill is fleshy, spicy and integrated, brimming promisingly with a wealth of dark cherry, strawberry and blood orange. A tease of cola and cardamom give it a powerful middle of nuanced richness around a body of firm integrated tannin."
