COBB Wines 2016 'Emmaline Anne Vineyard', Sonoma Coast, California, USA

  • Winemaker: Ross Cobb
  • Variety: Pinot Noir
  • Farming: Practicing Organic
  • Terroir: Jack Hill Vineyard is a 2-acre hillside site near Occidental in western Sonoma County, north of San Francisco. The vineyard faces the cool Freestone Valley to the west and the Pacific Ocean beyond. Dijon selections of Pinot Noir grow on Goldridge sandy loam soil.
  • Vinification: 40% Whole Cluster
  • Aging: 22 months in barrel, 30% new French oak.
  • ABV: 13.5% alcohol.
  • Production: 222 cases produced.
  • Tasting Notes: A brilliantly clear ruby red Pinot Noir, the 2016 Emmaline Ann offers aromas of pomegranate, wild strawberry, and tangerine zest with secondary notes of damp forest floor. On the palate, hints of wild Rainier cherries linger with brilliant structure and smooth tannins that are finely integrated. Currently sitting at the intersection of freshness and deep fruit intensity, it’s to be enjoyed in its youth and for many years to come.
  • Scores: 94 points, Vinous: The 2016 Emmaline-Ann Vineyard is dark and powerful, with more of a distinct sense of whole cluster savoriness and to match its insistent structural feel. Pine, mint, black cherry, citrus, licorice and dried flowers add aromatic intrigue to this dark, beautifully layered Pinot Noir. This is another stellar wine from Ross Cobb.
Year after year, the Emmaline Ann Pinot Noir is always one of Ross Cobb’s favorite wines. With a southwest exposure and some of the finest soils on the Sonoma Coast, the 3-acre Emmaline Ann Vineyard is a tiny gem. Because it gets the most fog of any of our vineyards in the Freestone Valley, it has a nerve and sophistication that Ross Cobb loves. At the same time, that cool coastal sunshine that shapes the far Sonoma Coast yields a vibrant wine with pure, lovely layers of fruit.
