2015 Cohn Vineyard, Pinot Noir

The source for our first ever Pinot Noir

Facts of Note

FERMENTATION

7% whole cluster

HISTORY

One of the oldest Pinot vineyards in the region

SOIL

Iron-rich 'terra rossa'

One of the oldest Pinot vineyards in Sonoma County, Cohn is small but perfectly formed, tucked up near Healdsburg on West Side Road. Michael first worked with Cohn fruit in 2000, upon the recommendation of friend and mentor John Farrington. John had worked with the vineyard during his time at Williams-Selyem and we’ve been lucky to have some Cohn in our cellar off and on these past 15 years. Owner Joe Anderson and his team are kind enough to let us continue this relationship today.


The soils at Cohn are very special. A mixture of Josephine loam, iron-rich clay-loam, quartz and cobblestones, they lend the wine a significant mineral and spice component.
