2013  Jeff Cohn Cellars Syrah Buffalo Hill Rockpile Vineyard
A Syrah Dry  Red Table wine from USA , Sonoma, North Coast, California, USA,   Rating: 98

Drink 2016 - 2031

  The 2013 Syrah Buffalo Hill Rockpile Vineyard, one of the specialties of Jeff Cohn, is even more complex and flirts with perfection. Notes of new saddle leather, blackberry, cassis and spring flowers are followed by a massively concentrated, but never heavy wine that carries its 15.5% natural alcohol flawlessly. This is great terroir, fabulous winemaking, and the result is a prodigious bottle of Syrah that certainly ranks with some of the finest ever made in California. It should drink well for at least 10-15 years, but good luck deferring your gratification on this one. Cohn does two other wines from the Rockpile vineyard. One of my favorite producers year in year out who still seems to fly under many people’s radar is Maryland-born Jeff Cohn. He has the Midas touch, it is clearly obvious. Anyone serious about wine should have some of his vinous elixirs in their cellar.

2013  Jeff Cohn Cellars Zinfandel Cassata Vineyard
A Zinfandel Dry  Red Table wine from USA , Sonoma, North Coast, California, USA,   Rating: 91
Drink 2016 - 2022
Cost: $42   I had the pleasure of tasting two Zinfandels from Cohn. The 2013 Zinfandel Cassata Vineyard carries a Sonoma appellation and a bold 15.6% natural alcohol. A rich, black raspberry-scented nose, a full-bodied mouthfeel and delicious fruit-forward style is not going to make old bones, but for drinking over the next 5-6 years, this is a sexy Zinfandel. One of my favorite producers year in year out who still seems to fly under many people’s radar is Maryland-born Jeff Cohn. He has the Midas touch, it is clearly obvious.

2013  Jeff Cohn Cellars Zinfandel Orcio Cassata Vineyard
A Zinfandel Dry  Red Table wine from USA , Sonoma Valley, North Coast, California, USA,   Rating: 93
Drink 2016 - 2020
Cost: $50   The 2013 Zinfandel Orcio Cassata Vineyard is a stunner, even eclipsing its stablemate from the same vineyard. With gorgeous rich blueberry and blackberry fruit and lofty alcohol (15.2%) that is hardly noticeable, the wine is full-bodied, multidimensional and a staggering example of Zinfandel at its best. One of my favorite producers year in year out who still seems to fly under many people’s radar is Maryland-born Jeff Cohn. He has the Midas touch, it is clearly obvious.

  The last offering that I tasted from the Rockpile Vineyard is the 2013 Syrah So Serine Rockpile. I am not sure there was any Viognier co-fermented with this wine, as again the color is an opaque purple to the rim, but comparisons with a great Côte Rôtie are not figments of one’s imagination. Extraordinary notes of violets and other flowers intermix with crème de cassis and blackberry, cutting a suave, velvety texture and stunning mouthfeel. This is Côte Rôtie in Sonoma and a magnificent example of Cohn’s brilliance and Midas touch with this varietal. Although this is the most forward of all of these wines, and delicious already, it promises to evolve for at least a decade or more.

2013  Jeff Cohn Cellars Syrah Haley Rockpile Vineyard
A Syrah Dry  Red Table wine from USA , Sonoma, North Coast, California, USA,   Rating: 96
Drink 2016 - 2031
Cost: $60   The 2013 Syrah Haley Rockpile is one of them. Inky opaque/purple in color, the wine has incredible sweet blackberry richness, a beautiful floral note, and that crushed-rock minerality that seems to be part of this AVA. The flavor intensity is mind-boggling, the purity, texture and length exquisite. This is another prodigious tour de force from Jeff Cohn that should drink well for at least 10-15 years.
