92 Pts Jeb Dunnuck The 2016 Smoke & Mirrors is a value-priced beauty that's packed with character. Black raspberries, spices, cedary herbs, and brambly notes all flow to a beautifully textured, voluptuous, decadent wine that has loads of fruit, no hard edges, and is just a joy to drink. 90 Pts Wine Spectator A spunky red, zesty and plump, with blackberry, cured meat and cracked pepper flavors. Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Carignane. Drink now through 2023 –TF 90 Pts Conn Guide Exhibiting the all of the winery's signature richness, this year's version of Smoke & Mirrors is rife with boysenberries and plums with plenty of sweet oak in support and is an intensely flavorful mélange of varieties that keys first and last on unrelenting, juicy fruit. It is fleshy and full with nicely fit tannins that allow for easy accessibility now, and it is a wine that delivers loads to like at a price that earns it a place among the better values to be had in full-throttle red-Rhône blends.

Awards
"Winemaker Jeff Cohn releases a huge number of Zinfandels and interesting blends from throughout California. He also makes a handful of truly brilliant Syrahs that will compete with anything coming out of California today." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
