2016 Cobb "Diane Cobb - Coastlands Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1501162 96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Sourced from a clonal nursery test-block planted in 1989. Tobacco, tree sap, and rose petals on the nose. The palate is deft and lifted with a savoury, cured meat-like element showing itself. A structured and definitive Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir for the long haul. (ML) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Named for the winemaker's late mother, this particular bottling is always a standout. It offers entangled layers of tangerine, strawberry and earthy leather. This is a fine wine to consider cellaring. (VB) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Pinot Noir Diane Cobb Coastlands Vineyard has a pale ruby color and scents of cranberry sauce, cracked pepper, woodsmoke and tobacco leaves with top notes of citrus peel and floral perfume. The medium-bodied palate is grainy and fresh, exploding with savory flavors while maintaining that pretty floral nuance through the long finish. Lovely! (EB) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Diane Cobb: Coastlands Vineyard emerges from mix of 18 different Pinot clones on the property. Not only is the Diane Cobb the most complex wine in this range, it is also has the most structure and pure power. Dark cherry, plum, lavender, rose petal and spice open up in the glass, but only with great reluctance. Readers will have to be patient. The 2016 is a truly special wine in the making. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

94 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark By the fourth day of tasting this wine, its tough tannins turned lighter, almost airy in their sandstone abrasion, while the spicy notes of strawberry, cranberry and rhubarb turned racy and elegant. Ross Cobb grows this wine at a nursery block of vines his mother planted in 1989, when his parents were just beginning to establish their Coastlands Vineyard. It includes more than 20 selections on their own roots, particularly Jackson Clone 16, one of the more successful at the site (the family later propagated it more extensively in this block). From the crisp details of the delicate fruit to the transformation of the tannins with air, everything points to the coastal complexity this wine will grow into with time. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Pinot Noir Coastlands Diane Cobb offers an exotic style in its wild strawberry, blueberry, candied orange, and rose petal aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, vibrant and pure on the palate, with a chiseled style, it has bright acidity, plenty of framing tannins and great balance and length. Inner quote mark (6/2019)
