WOW: NEW! JC Cellars

WOW: Wine of the Week

New to JC Cellars!

JC Cellars
ANOTHER new addition to the family!

I know that I am tired of "Smoke and Mirrors..." but there is always room to drink them! 

Try these two new delights today...remember, it won't be long and our attention will shift to lighter reds and white wine to usher in Spring and Summer!

Winery Notes

"When Jeff Cohn was the winemaker at Rosenblum Cellars, annually he crafted more than 70 different wines. Today, at his Oakland-based warehouse winery, the irrepressible vintner now limits himself to a mere 21 bottlings, focusing on Rhône varietals. Cohn’s longtime relationships with some of California’s top growers and vineyards enable him to source some of the state’s finest fruit, including Rockpile in Sonoma County, Fess Parker in Santa Barbara County and Stagecoach in Napa." - Winery Notes

JC Cellars "Smoke and Mirrors" Red Blend 2010 Tasting Notes

"Pureness of fruit is the main focus of this wine, but there is definitely a dark and brambly side that lends intrigue. With notes of wild raspberries and blackberries, a hint of sweet cream and dark cocoa powder, this wine is complex enough to confound while remaining approachable and easy to drink." - Winemaker Notes
Blend: 33% Syrah, 33% Petite Sirah, 33% Zinfandel

JC Cellars Rockpile  Vineyards "Haley" Syrah 2009 Tasting Notes

"Black cherry and dark chocolate swirled with blueberry and wet stone in the mix. A true experience in not just Syrah, but Rockpile Syrah, from beginning to end." - Winemaker Notes
