2012 Cohn Vineyard Pinot Noir 1.5L
This flagship wine from our oldest estate vineyard produced a painfully low yield of about one ton per acre. A medium ruby color is followed by gorgeously intense aromas of spring flowers, Queen Anne cherries, with Santa Rosa plum and mineral notes.
Planted in 1970, this spectacular Pinot Noir Vineyard would be considered old by California standards. Planted to a massale selection of Pinot Noirs (likely Martini 13 and Pommard) our vineyard outdates most other plantings in the Russian River Valley by 20 years. Farmed organically and with minimal irrigation, these gnarled vines to produce small and compact clusters with yields of just over 1 ton per acre. Harvested at night, the fruit was rigorously hand sorted prior to destemming and then berry selected before open top fermentation.
