This 2-pack includes 1 bottle of 2009 - Giovanni Sordo Barolo, and 1 bottle of 2008 - Jc Cellars Haley Rockpile Vineyard Syrah.
2009 - Giovanni Sordo Barolo
"The Sordo family has assembled an estate with holdings in their home base of Serralunga d'Alba, as well as Monforte, Barolo, La Morra, Novello, Castiglione Falleto and Grinzane Cavour. This wine represents a blend from all of those sites, creating a terrific 2009, its nebbiolo volume turned up high. There's an infectious joy in the fragrant red rose flavors that last through precisely ripe tannins and plush fruit." (12/13) - 93 Pts Wine & Spirits
"Garnet red with orange tones more obvious over the years; delicate, ethereal, intense, large and persistent; taste warm, full, complex, dry and harmonious. The wine's austerity is related to the presence of tannins, sweet and complex." - Winery
"The grapes are picked fully ripe and undergo a rigorous selection, the wine-making are started immediately on their arrival in the cellar. The fermentation, submerged cap, according to tradition, is extended for two or three weeks at a temperature of 29-30 degrees C."
"Mature for two years in traditional oak barrels of medium capacity and is aged for at least a year in bottle before being put on sale." - Winery
2008 - Jc Cellars Haley Rockpile Vineyard Syrah
"The 2008 Syrah Rockpile exhibits an opaque blue/purple color followed by a dense nose of blueberry pie intermixed with blackberry, pepper, flower and new saddle leather aromas. Dense, rich and full-bodied with silky tannins and a heady finish, it should drink well for 5-6 years. It would be terrific news if one day the winemaker behind all these brilliant wines, Jeff Cohn, gets his own winery and vineyard. He certainly has a knack for putting together super wines, generally from Rhone Ranger varietals, but also Zinfandel." (12/10) - 93+ Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"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 Rhone 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."
"Jeff Cohn, the winemaker, president, and "JC" of JC Cellars got his start in the industry almost 20 years ago. As an intern at Boordy Vineyards in Maryland, he drove an hour and half each way to prune vines in frigid weather, pick grapes in stifling heat, and scrub everything from barrels to floors. Cohn had always loved the hospitality industry, and as he worked through several high profile positions after college he found his passion for wine steadily growing. The more he learned, the more he wanted to learn, until he realized that becoming a winemaker was his ultimate goal...With the encouragement and support of his family, Cohn moved to California in 1993 to follow his dream. He earned his master's degree in agriculture chemistry, with an emphasis on enology, from California State University, Fresno in 1996. It was here that Cohn discovered French winemaking techniques and the concept of terroir."
"Upon graduation, Cohn 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, Cohn was officially promoted to winemaker, and in 2004 was named vice president of winemaking and production at Rosenblum...He began his own label, JC Cellars, in 1996. JC's first vintage was the 1996 Rhodes Vineyard Zinfandel. 75 cases were made. Over time, case production at JC slowly increased from that small, intimate introduction to over 5,000 cases annually." -Winery
"Jeff Cohn's winemaking philosophy begins with sourcing prime fruit from exceptional vineyards. After more than 15 years in the industry, Cohn's experience working with some of California's top vineyards, including Rockpile Vineyard in the hills of Sonoma County, Fess Parker Vineyard in Santa Barbara County and Stagecoach Vineyard in Napa Valley, allows him to source only the finest fruit for JC Cellars. He prefers vineyards with steep rocky terrain, which produce distinctive fruit, resulting in wines with immense concentration and complexity." -Winery
