Dark ruby. Pungent, highly perfumed aromas of black raspberry, cherry and licorice are complicated by sexy floral and Asian spice nuances. Deeply concentrated but lively, with impressive energy to its red and dark berry compote flavors. Finishes spicy and very long, with sweet rose pastille and raspberry notes clinging tenaciously. Give this wine some air if you insist on drinking it any time soon.
Brisk acidity brightens the ripe raspberry and cherry fruit, giving it a clean, lively mouthfeel. There’s a jacket of tannins, but it’s fine and easy, and oak brings just the right touch of sweet toast flavor. Lovely to drink now, and it should develop bottle complexities over the next 8–10 years.
From the Cobb family’s vineyard on the far coast near Occidental, this is a powerfully concentrated young Pinot Noir. Its bold red fruit is rich up front, tightening up into spicy tannins at the end. Give this several years in the cellar to unfold.
