Cobb Pinot Noir Emmaline Ann Vineyard 2017
In 2001, two generations of the Cobb family came together to explore a shared passion for Pinot Noir with the founding of Cobb Wines. By remaining true to this elegant and complex style, Cobb Wines has earned a reputation for crafting benchmark single-vineyard, Sonoma Coast Pinot Noirs.
The 2017 Emmaline Ann displays a pure, vibrant nose of lavender, rose water and conifer. Ripe red cherries and cranberries make up the core of the palate, and the weightless, deft texture this site tends to exude is here in spades. A woodsy, dried-mushroom note hangs in the background of this vintage, making this a slightly more savory and forward iteration of the usually restrained and always gorgeous Emmaline Ann.
94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The 2017 Pinot Noir Emmaline Ann Vineyard is elegant and perfumed, with bright cranberry and red cherry fruits accented by forest floor and amaro. It's light-bodied and grainy with broody, earth and spiced-laced fruits enlivened by bright freshness on the long, nuanced finish.

93 Points - James Suckling This has impressive detail and fragrant interest with roses, violets, blueberries and a dark-stone edge. The palate has a succulent and fresh core with very pure and fresh, blueberry flavor. Impressive focus here. Drink or hold.
93 Points - Wine Enthusiast Textured and earthy, with a firmness of tannin, this youthful wine is high toned and full of energy. Layers of crunchy pomegranate, rhubarb and black tea mingle and meld across the palate, seasoned in cardamom and white pepper.
