2015 Cobb ‘Jack Hill’ Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
When Ross Cobb received the award for ‘Year’s Best Pinot’ from Wine & Spirits magazine we weren’t at all surprised. The Cobb wines have always been a rung above the rest in a tasting line up. This Jack Hill 2015 was quite beastly when it first released, now the tannins have calmed a bit and the vibrant fruit is soft and elegant. Sweet red cherry, pipe tobacco, licorice, savory spice and blood orange fill the senses. The palate is driven with purpose and is a perfect pick for your next herb-crusted chicken and grilled veggie dinner.
