2011 COBB Emmaline Ann Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

12.8% alc., 96 cases, $75. This 3- acre vineyard is near the town of Occidental. Dijon clones are planted in Goldridge soil on a southfacing slope. · Light garnet color in the glass. A savory nose featuring aromas of cherry, herbs, pine tree and forest floor. Very light dark red cherry flavor with a modest oak touch. Supple tannins and bright acidity, but very lean on the attack and finish. Seems to be from vines that struggled to ripen in this vintage. Score: 87. Reviewed July 19, 2014
