    Cobb Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard Old Firs Block 2017

    • Tasting Notes

      “The Old Firs Block strikes a beautiful balance between the power typical of this site and its elegance in 2017. The nose is filled with dark cherries, raspberries, and the signature Coastlands-note of bay laurel. The mid-palate is polished and svelte before giving way to a bright, focused finish of orange rind and Meyer lemon peels. There is a consistently ‘sappy’ quality to the wines from this vineyard, and I very much like its understated framing in this vintage.”
      Matthew Luczy, Wine Director at Mélisse Santa Monica

    • The Vineyard

      Located adjacent to a stand of 275-year-old Douglas trees, the Old Firs Block of our Coastlands Vineyards features our oldest Pinot Noir vines planted back in 1989 at the very top of vineyard, at an elevation of 1,200 feet, in deep rich soils. These selections of heritage clones Wadenswil 2A and Martini 13 and 15 produce a rich, intense wine with enticing spice and savory herb notes.

    • Accolades

      “The 2017 Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard Old Firs Block emerges from a block planted in 1989 with Wadenswil and Martini clones. Readers will find a lifted, ethereal Pinot built on grace and understatement. The style is a bit fleeting. The Old Firs is a wine for contemplation. It won't give up much on its own, rather it is a wine that demands full attention from the reader. Rose petal, lavender and white pepper notes add a beguiling upper register. The 2017 is a total knock out. That's pretty much all there is to it."
      Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media January 2020 - 97 Points
