2012 Cobb Wines "Diane Cobb: Coastlands Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1205416 94 points Vinous

 The 2012 Pinot Noir Diane Cobb: Coastlands Vineyard is fabulous. Deep, rich and beautifully layered to the core, the 2012 possesses a remarkable sense of weightless power. The inclusion of 40% whole clusters, gives the Diane Cobb a gorgeous sense of lift. Lavender, smoke, grilled, herbs and violets are some of the notes that meld into the super-expressive finish. What a gorgeous wine this is. In the 2012, this fruit was picked into October. Ross Cobb is one of the most introspective, thoughtful growers/winemakers on the Sonoma Coast. At their best, Cobb's wines possess extraordinary purity and finesse. The 2012s, though, are a bit of a mixed bag. Cobb generally prefers to pick on the early side. He then gives his Pinots more time in barrel than is customary in California, around 22 months, with minimal, if any racking.  (1/2015)

Wine Spectator

 Centered on firm, delicate plum and cherry flavors, with a touch of anise and crushed rock, this ends with a reverberating mix of lively, dense and elegant fruit notes. Drink now through 2020. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 225 cases made. (Web Only, 2015)
