2015 JEFF COHN CELLARS DOMAINE DES CHIRATS ROCKPILE VINEYARD SYRAH --- $63.99!! JD96!
JD96: "A collaboration with Yves Cuilleron in France's northern Rhône Valley, the 2015 Syrah Domaine des Chirats Rockpile Vineyard is a sensational, rich, layered Syrah that does everything right. Crème de cassis, blueberries, smoked meats, white flowers and exotic spices all flow to a full-bodied, powerful Syrah that would be a dead-ringer for a top Hermitage. It's certainly not for those craving lightweight aromas and flavors, but it has extraordinary purity, awesome depth of fruit, and a great, great finish.
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."
WA93+: "The 2015 Syrah Rockpile Cuilleron Collaboration is deep garnet-purple colored with quite a savory nose of smoked meats, tapenade, truffles and cardamom over a core of crushed blackberries, crème de cassis and blueberry pie with wafts of mocha and dried herbs. Full-bodied with tons of vivacious black fruits in the mouth, it has a plush texture and oodles of freshness, finishing very long and savory. 91 Pts Connoisseurs' Guide In this continuing collaboration with Rhône master, Yves Cuilleron, Jeff Cohn has once again hit the jackpot with a sturdy, tightly wound, deep effort that is more Californian than French yet does come with a tighter structure than his other efforts from the Rockpile AVA. It has the density, the depth and the continuity of those others and here demands as much as a decade of aging in order to give full voice to the blackberry, roasted grain, lightly herbal notes that sit at its very heart and promise to emerge over time."
