Reviews:

"...aromas of dark cherry, spice, fertile earth and mesquite. Mid weight plus flavors of black cherry, blueberry-pomegranate and cherry cola are embellished with toasty oak in the background. Wellrounded, integrated tannins and texturally appealing with a soft and sleek mouthfeel..." - PinotFile

Tasting Notes:

Garnet color in the glass. The nose opens slowly over time revealing aromas of dark cherry, spice, and tobacco. A full mid palate with flavors of black cherry, blueberry-pomegranate and cherry cola, embellished with toasty oak in the background. Wellrounded, integrated tannins and texturally appealing with a soft and sleek mouthfeel. Those who favor a gorgeous Pinot Noir will love this wine.

The Story to Know:

Cosa Obra celebrates the artistic nature of winemaking by focusing on small vineyard parcels and blending the resulting lots to create wines of seduction, power and grace.

The name Cosa Obra is comprised of two words, Cosa meaning "thing" and Obra "a hand-crafted body of work". This is our thing, this is what we do, this is our hand-crafted body of work.

Wine is a living thing. It evolves and changes through time. In this way, nature tells the story through the soil, weather and time. High quality boutique wines require a hand-crafted approach and a team of artisans with a vision.

Owner Gregory Hayes, and Consulting Winemaker Kent Humphrey have come together to form a team with over two decades of experience in the wine industry and a passion for unique wines. Our winemaking goal is simple; make a small amount of exceptional wine from carefully selected artisan vineyards from Sonoma County and share them at a reasonable price.

Through these efforts Cosa Obra produces a Proprietary Red Blend and a Sauvignon Blanc crafted from grapes purchased from small growers in the Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley and Bennett Valley. Our limited production wines are released when they are ready to share and enjoy with friends & family. 

Certified California Sustainable Winegrowing (CCSW). The Sangiacomo Southern Sonoma Vineyard was first planted in 1974. The Sangiacomos set down roots in the loamy Sonoma soil more than 80 years ago. Respecting what has worked in the past. Implementing new viticultural practices to improve quality and preserve the environment. The Sangiacomo's are dedicated more than ever to producing Pinot Noirs of nuance and longevity.

The two weather conditions that describe the Carneros AVA is Windy and foggy. This cool appellation is situated on the northern edge of San Pablo Bay and experiences only moderate rain annually and very thin soils. Fog rolling in from the bay keeps the grapes cool in the strong summer sun—making this a prime growing area for cool-loving varieties such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

The fruit we source is from a small Pommard block of Pinot Noir in the Carneros region just south of the town of Sonoma. Yields are maintained at lower levels for increased quality, ranging from 3 to 5 tons/acre. Fermentations go through malolactic fermentation for added complexity. The result is a generous mouthful of rich, complex Pinot Noir, with nice layering, finishing with delightful notes of spice.

Perfect Pairings:

Salmon, roasted chicken and pasta dishes.
