Cobb Coastlands Vineyard: Old Firs Block Pinot Noir 2012

Old Firs is one of the two original vineyard blocks that Ross Cobb's parents-David and Diane-planted in 1989. The soil here is rich, deep clay loam, which allows the vines to be dry farmed. Still, it's a cool site, and yields are quite low...translucent, then transparent: refreshing scents of juniper and rosemary, red fruit mingled with earth, the appetizing zestiness of blood oranges. The overall impression is one of cool instensity, the wine's flavors tied as if by invisible strings to precise, stony tannins...supremely coastal-a brilliant wine that couldn't come from anywhere else.

Woah. Funk. Needs time to blow off - probably too young. Earthy notes, pine, spice. Funk almost overpowering.... Curious if this is typical.
