As I tiptoe through the entertainment industry, dabbling in mediums beyond the microphone and my four-stringed piece of electric furniture, I once again find myself venturing into a new foray. What started as an attempt to fill our own personal wine cache has turned into a “boutique” wine venture and an attempt to make the best possible vino while still having a good time. To that end, we were fortunate enough to hire an amazing winemaker, Ross Cobb, whose pedigree includes stints making wine at Hirsch and Flowers as well as his own label, Cobb Wines. Having lived in West Sonoma County since 1994, I’ve watched what was once the Gravenstein apple haven of Northern California turn into a Mecca for those wine geeks who seek out optimum quality Pinot Noir. The region is known as the Russian River Valley, and further west, the Sonoma Coast appellation, and the fruit that comes from these areas is arguably some of the best on the planet.
