A Highly Rated Syrah From Jeff Cohn (JC Cellars)
From acclaimed Rhone Winemaker Yves Cuilleron in a joint venture with Jeff Cohn of JC Cellars from one of the top vineyard sites in Sonoma (Rockpile AVA)
2013 JC Cellars Domaine des Chirats Syrah
This wine is dark, with hues of red and purple that are opaque in saturation. Aromatics of wild herbs stimulate the senses as you meander to a sweet nose of black cherry, blackberries, cassis, and liquid minerals. A harmonious balance of tannins, acidity, concentrated black fruits, and roasted Herbes de Provence, yield to a bold and lengthy finish. Not French, not California, but pure Rockpile Syrah.
