Sadly, this will be the LAST Coho Pinot Noir ever. Gary Lipp is retiring next year and this is his swan song. It has been a great run, but with neither of his children interested in the business, he pulled the plug. He did it like many professional athletes, go out with a bang at the top of your career! No Superbowl or World-Series here, just some great wine at a great price. Thank you Gary for all those years of great wines at a great price! We will raise a glass to you!

The 2018 Coho is made from three distinct Dijon clones (115, 667, 777) sourced from the Home Hill section of the Stanly Ranch, and fermented with a Romanee-Conti yeast selection. The wine is aged for 10 months in French oak (40% new, 60% 1 year-old barrels). The wine offers ripe aromas of black cherry, wild berry and enticing ripe plum aromas mingle with floral violet scents with a toasted almond and vanilla-infused bouquet. Rich and mouth-filling on entry, where the opulent texture reveals layered black cherry, plum, and red currant flavors and fine-grained tannins which build finesse on the elegant finish. Only 305 six-pack cases were produced.
Winery Notes: “Stanly Ranch is the easternmost vineyard in the Los Carneros appellation. Originally planted with Pinot Noir in the 1870s, the vineyard borders the wetlands of the Napa River/San Pablo Bay watershed. Proximity to the cool foggy marine climate of the bay imparts spicy aromatics in the wine, while the clay and clay loam soils contribute an earthy complexity to the blackcherry fruit flavors.”
Wine Spectator 92 Points: “Delivers a supple spiciness to the lively red fruit and berry flavors, with chocolate and cream in the midpalate and an umamilike richness on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 305 cases made.”
