Caliza Paso Robles Cohort 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Jeb Dunnuck from Wine Advocate gave this wine 93 points. His review: "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." 58% Syrah, 16% Petite Sirah, 16% Tempranillo, 16% Mourvedre. 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.

Thick and rich ripe blackberry and black cherry aromas with some earth and leather on the nose and a dash of black pepper with a touch of heat. Very smooth on the entry followed by a bite of tannin filling the mouth with some cranberry and black cherry. Some licorice sneaks in behind blueberry as the tannins linger well into the finish.
