Jeff Cohn Cellars #PureYum Syrah-Grenache 2016 - 750ml
94 points Wine Ethusiast Editors' Choice
"This expertly blends 67% Syrah with 33% Grenache into a blockbuster package of full-bodied flavor and balanced brightness, melding together sanguine meaty tones with an underlying richness of blueberry pie and graham cracker. Velvety smooth, it packs a memorably delicious punch."
92 Pts Jeb Dunnuck
"The 2016 Pure Yum comes from Sonoma County and is a blend of 67% Syrah and 33% Grenache that was 70% destemmed and spent 18 months in neutral barrels. This darker fruited, spicy red has plenty of intensity, a complex, spicy, forest floor character, a hint of sweet earth, ripe tannins, and a great finish. As with all Jeff's wines, it delivers ample character and intensity while staying fresh and lively."
Upon graduating from California State University in 1996, Jeff joined Rosenblum Cellars as an enologist. He rapidly moved beyond lab work and soon found himself in charge of the entire white wine program. In 2000, Jeff was officially promoted to winemaker, and in 2004 was named vice president of winemaking and production at Rosenblum. He was instrumental in creating cutting-edge barrel and yeast programs at the winery. It was through experimentation at Rosenblum that Jeff perfected the technique of using different types of yeast to create even more subtle, specific characteristics in the wine he was crafting.
He began his own label, Jeff Cohn Cellars, in 1996. Jeff Cohn's first vintage was the 1996 Rhodes Vineyard Zinfandel. 75 cases were made. Over time, case production at Jeff Cohn Cellars slowly increased from that small, intimate introduction to over 5,000 cases annually. In January 2006 Jeff finally parted ways with Rosenblum to focus exclusively on his own winery, but not before crafting the 2003 Rockpile Road Zinfandel, which placed 3rd on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list that year. This was a coup for not only Jeff but all of California’s winemaking industry, as no Zinfandel had ever appeared so high on the list before. In fact, no Zinfandel from California had ever even cracked the top ten.
Winemaker's Tasting Notes
A sensory overload that needs to be tried for sure. Aromatically this wine goes in so many directions but seems to come to a true focus in the end. Starting with savory notes, blackberries, raspberries, black currants and dark chocolate. The palate echoes in its flavors, but with a little more of the red raspberries taking the lead in this full bodied wine.
