In 2001, two generations of the Cobb family came together to explore a shared passion for Pinot Noir with the founding of Cobb Wines. Focused exclusively on crafting single-vineyard, Sonoma Coast Pinot Noirs, Cobb Wines combines the winegrowing expertise of David Cobb — one of the pioneers of Pinot Noir viticulture on the far Sonoma Coast — with the winemaking talents of his son, noted pinot noir specialist, Ross Cobb. The original seeds for Cobb Wines were planted in 1989 when David began cultivating pinot noir vines at his sustainably farmed Coastlands Vineyard. A marine ecologist by trade, David spent years studying soils and climatological charts in his search for the ideal place to found his vineyard. His search led him to the ridgetops of the Sonoma Coast, where he believed he would be able to grow grapes perfectly suited to a more complex and graceful style of California pinot noir. On weekend and summer breaks from college, David would be joined in the vineyard by his son Ross, who quickly grew to love the hands-on work of growing wine grapes. And the rest, as they say… is history!
Cobb 2019 Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard
Robert Parker 98 Points: “Made with 60% whole clusters, the 2019 Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard has a medium ruby color and pure, continually shifting aromas of raspberry preserves, blood orange, sage, Earl Grey tea leaves, and forest floor. The palate offers an abundance of silty tannins and surprising intensity of sweet berry fruit for its weight. It offers fine floral accents and finishes with fantastic length and nuance of flavor.”
Winery Notes: “Coastlands Vineyard is our estate property, first planted in 1989. These now-old vines are producing tremendous wines without the benefit of irrigation or fertilizer. This is one of the most westerly planted Pinot Noir sites in Sonoma County. Originally established by David and Diane Cobb, Ross Cobb now farms the estate where he lives with his wife and daughter. This wine is a blend of fruit from across the estate and is a perfect representation of the coastal terroir that is so rare to find in California. Only 227 cases were produced”
