100% Zinfandel from the St. Peter's Church Vineyard, one of Jeff's favorites that produces the most amazing expression of Zinfandel. It's ethereal, it fills all of your senses, with briary blackberry, cocoa, and roasted coffee notes with subtle hints of salted toffee and cracked black pepper.

"The 2013 Zinfandel St. Peter's Church Vineyard has been made by Cohn since 1996 and is farmed by the well-known grower and viticulturalist Ulises Valdez. A deep, super-concentrated style of Zinfandel, but very well-balanced, the wine offers sweet tannin, adequate acidity, and copious quantities of blackberry and peppery notes in its flagrance and full-bodied, powerful flavors. At 15.2% alcohol, there's nothing wimpy about this Zinfandel, but it also carries its alcohol brilliantly, and the overall impression is one of exceptional balance. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
Jeff has worked with St. Peter's Church Vineyard since 1996. It is one of his favorite vineyards for Zinfandel. Planted with 20 year St. Peter's Church selection vines, which Jeff says is magic wherever it is planted.
This wine is very mystical. I have been involved with this vineyard since 1996 and friends with the grower Ulises Valdez, just as long. This wine is one of the most amazing expressions of Zinfandel and one of my favorite vineyards to work with. It was originally encircled with mixed blacks (Petite Sirah, Carignane, Alicante Bouschet and Grande Noir). A true circle of head trained vines. The thought for this was if powdery milder or other diseases were to hit this vineyard, it would affect the outer circle first and protect the prized Zinfandel.
