2017 Cobb Coastlands Vineyard Old Fir Block Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

12.1% alc., 175 cases, $80. · Sourced from a block originally planted in 1999 to W├Ądenswil and Martini clones. Moderate garnet color in the glass. Very pleasant aromas of black cherry, baking spices, and sandalwood becoming more exuberant over time in the glass. Light to mid-weight in style featuring a core of dark cherry underlain with excellent natural acidity and mild tannins. Light on its feet and juicy, with a slightly tart and quenching finish. Builds in welcome richness over time in the glass, and developing an added forest character (fir as the Old Fir Block name implies). Score: 94. Reviewed July 28, 2021
