2008 JC Cellars "Smoke & Mirrors" Red Blend

SKU #1063617

94 points from Robert Parker: "Absolutely stunning, the 2008 Smoke and Mirrors is a 158-case blend of 50% Syrah, 31% Petite Sirah and the rest Carignan, Zinfandel, Grenache and Tempranillo. Displaying Cohn’s magical touch, it is a sensational bargain boasting an opaque purple color along with super blackberry, lead pencil shavings, pen ink, charcoal and camphor notes. This dense, full-bodied, silky smooth red possesses a singular personality as well as compelling richness and length. It should drink nicely for 5-7 years." (Dec. 2010)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
