After a number of successful vintages of producing red blends, Cosa Obra was lucky enough to gain access to some of the amazing fruit from Hummingbird Hill Vineyard in the cool, windy hills of the Sonoma Coast (the same fruit that was being sourced for the much more expensive Quintessa and Illumination wines). Yields are maintained at low levels, ranging from 1.5 to 3 tons/acre, thus the quality of the fruit shines through on this vintage. They chose two small batches of carefully selected Clone 1 and Sauvignon Musque and fermented in a combination of Stainless and neutral oak barrels. For those who have had great Sauvignon Blanc, you're in luck, here's your chance to stock up at great pricing & free shipping.
The 2010 Cosa Obra Sauvignon Blanc from Hummingbird Hill Vineyard is pale straw in color and boasts a powerful nose of lime, pear, and lemon. The palate shows fresh tropical flavors of kiwi and mango and papaya, along with peach and just a hint of honey. Fleshy and vibrant, this is the perfect sipper, equally at home on the patio chilled, or at the dinner table served with tapas and hard cheeses. Those who have tried this wine have added it to their repertoire and keep coming back for more.

The name Cosa Obra is comprised of two words, COSA meaning "our thing" and OBRA "a hand-crafted body of work".
Owner Gregory Hayes, and Consulting Winemaker Kent Humphrey came together to form a team with over two decades of experience in the wine industry and a passion for unique and outstanding wines. Their winemaking goal was simple; make a small amount of the best possible wine from carefully selected artisan vineyards around Sonoma County.
Through these efforts Cosa Obra currently produces two wines, 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. The limited production wines are released when they reach a level of enjoyment to share and enjoy with friends & family.
