2014 Sweetwater Springs Vineyard Petite Sirah

The palate has great intensity with backbone structure, reflecting the aromatics, but with layers of dusty minerality that come from this steep 55 degree hillside vineyard.

Wine Profile

Dark and rich like a great chocolate truffle dusted with cocoa powder from Valrhona Chocolates of Hermitage with a cherry kirsch center.
94+ Pts Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate "Lovers of massive, highly pigmented, pedal-to-the-metal wines will adore Cohn's 2014 Petite Sirah Sweetwater. Black purple to the rim, it offers floral-infused black and blueberry-dominated perfume, huge, full-bodied, dense and unctuous black fruits, surprisingly sweet tannin and a 45-second finish. It's a killer Petite Sirah to drink over the next 30-40 years."
Landy Sweetwater Springs Vineyard has drainage similar to Rockpile which stressed the Seghesio Home Ranch selection of Petite Sirah planted there. Small intense berries produce wines with intensity and richness, but soft and round with finesse.
