B.R. Cohn Olive Hill Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
A classic Cabernet aroma profile with currant, plum, and black cherry. This is complemented by an enticing floral, violet aroma, rich herbal characters of bay, clove and anise, and cedar box. On the palate, rich flavors of dark stone fruit and candied berry are accompanied by firm round tannins, toasty vanilla, caramel, and a silky soft finish.
Pairs perfectly with bacon wrapped fillet, braised lamb shank, and other grilled meats. A good wine for spicy marinara meatballs and pasta, Cajun sausage gumbo, or red chili steak fajitas with spicy black beans.

B.R. Cohn Winery is a 90-acre estate nestled between the Mayacamas Mountain Range and Sonoma Mountain in the heart of Sonoma Valley. Founded by Bruce Cohn, who previously was a rock and roll manager, B.R. Cohn has been hand-crafting wines and rocking out since 1984. With 61-acre Olive Hill Estate Vineyard that benefits from a unique confluence of geological and climatic factors that keep its soils warm, its vines frost-free and its grapes ripe and flavor-packed. These advantages explain why B.R. Cohn is among Sonoma Valley’s finest producers of world-class wines.
While Sonoma County is acclaimed—and rightfully so—for its Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs, and Zinfandels, it also produces exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. Of the region’s 18 American Viticultural Areas, only a handful produce top-notch Cabernet Sauvignon. These appellations include Alexander Valley, Knights Valley, Sonoma Valley and Dry Creek Valley. Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignons made in these appellations can offer a complex array of aromas and flavors. Fruit notes such as blackberry, blackcurrant, cassis, black cherry and raspberry often are accompanied by hints of graphite, dusty earth, cigar box, toast and vanilla. The varietal has a rich history in Sonoma, and some of these Cabernet Sauvignons and Cabernet-based blends rival the best from Napa Valley.
