Cohn Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir
This flagship wine is from our oldest estate vineyard that was planted in 1970 and would be considered old by California standards. Planted to a massale selection of Pinot Noir (likely Martini and Pommard) our vineyard outdates other plantings in Russian River by nearly 20 years. We dry-farm these gnarled vines to produce small and compact clusters with tremendous flavor.
We harvest the vineyard at night under lights and hand-sort every cluster of fruit from this organically farmed vineyard. A gorgeously intense aroma of spring flowers, Queen Anne cherries with red raspberry fruit and mineral notes, follows the wine’s medium ruby color.
