Jeff Cohn Cellars Rockpile Vineyard Syrah 2014

97 points - limited                                                                                             Jeff Cohn, former winemaker at Rosenblum, now makes some fantastic small-production wines and Zins. Highly recommended. 97 Points Robert Parker:  "The 2014 Syrah Haley from Rockpile, is 100% Syrah aged 16 months in different sized French barrels. Thirty percent whole clusters were used. This is more structured, mineral-dominated and masculine than the So Serine, which is a quintessential, elegant, feminine, but super-rich style of Syrah. This is also rich, but more virile, backward and needing several years of bottle age. This full-bodied classic should drink well for 10-15 years and readers should approach it like they would an Hermitage from France’s Northern Rhône Valley... ...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."

Rockpile Haley bottling, I’ll take Paso Syrah over this Vineyard in Sonoma. Nothing really unique or distinctive about this one. Good but not great

Outstanding syrah! Nicely balanced, great intense dark fruit with a nice hint of spice to finish. Tannins will round out nicely in a couple years, but very drinkable today.
