58% Syrah, 16% Petite Sirah, 16% Tempranillo, 10% Mourvèdre
This wine will get your blood pumping. There is an amazing balance of lively red fruit characters along with dark and mysterious black fruit overtones which seem to coat your palate and linger forever. Only 260 cases of this beauty were produced. Aged 18 months French Oak and 14 additional months in bottle prior to its recent release. We suggest you decant this wine for a few hours in order to experience it to the fullest.
"The 2011 Cohort is another superb blend from this estate that does everything right. Made from 58% Syrah and the rest equal parts Petite Sirah, Tempranillo and Mourvedre, it has some earthy, leather and peppery notes to go with beautiful cassis, raspberry, licorice and crushed rock-like aromas and flavors. This leads to a full-bodied, layered and concentrated wine that has building tannin, beautiful purity of fruit and an overall elegant, focused style. As with all of these new releases, it will evolve gracefully on its purity and balance." Jeb Dunnuck - Wine Advocate - 93 Points
