2013 Jeff Cohn Cellars "#PureYum" California Rhone Blend

SKU #1272624 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Another proprietary red is the 2013 #PureYum, a blend of 67% Syrah, 23% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre. Aged in neutral French oak for 16 months, this wine tips the scales at a heady 15.2%. A relatively high percentage of 40% whole clusters was used during the fermentation. Delicious blackberry and black cherry fruit as well as spice and licorice are all present in this full-bodied wine that is indeed exceptionally yummy. A multitude of AVAs were chosen for this blend, which Cohn has masterfully put together. This soft, savory, voluptuously textured and seductive wine should drink well for another 4-5 years. It’s a beauty – both intellectually satisfying and hedonistic One of my favorite wine producers in California is Jeff Cohn, who seems to have the Midas touch when it comes to accessing special vineyard sites and exploiting them to produce full- flavored, pedal-to-the-metal wines.

90 points Wine Spectator

 Plump and well-structured, with floral blueberry and smoky plum aromas and appealingly ripe and zesty flavors of grilled herb, licorice and peppered beef that linger toward ripe tannins. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2026. 200 cases made.  (11/2016)

Connoisseurs Guide

 *One Star* Mr. Cohn's liking for ripeness and richness comes through very clearly here, yet for all the wine's amplitude and intimations of sweetness, it is not at all over the top and delivers plenty of generously oaked, dark berry fruit. It is at once wide open and moderately tannic in a way that both invites drinking and argues for a few years of age, but, whether held or enjoyed soon, it will fill the niche nicely as a foil to hearty, full-flavored dishes.

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.

Specific Appellation:

Napa Valley

- America's most famous wine region, which encompasses a varied geographical territory running about 20 miles long from the San Francisco Bay northward to the foot of Mount St. Helena. Napa's great diversity, both in terms of climate and terroir, has led to the creation of a number of smaller AVAs like Stags Leap District, Rutherford, Howell Mountain, Oakville and Mount Veeder, among others. Cabernet and chardonnay still reign supreme, but just about everything under the sun is grown in Napa Valley, in quality levels ranging from $2 jug wine to $500 a bottle California cab.
