    Winemaker Notes

    Produced exclusively from grapes grown in Sonoma Valley, this wine has exceptional fresh fruit flavors. A pleasant berry taste, combined with a dash of spice, is evident in the taste. Include the aging in carefully selected French oak barrels and you have a wonderful drinking wine.

    Due to our replanting of vineyards, some of the fruit for this wine was purchased from our neighbors in Sonoma Valley. Some Olive Hill Cabernet Sauvignon was also blended in to this vintage.

    The 1999 B. R. Cohn Merlot is a perfect accompaniment to grilled lamb, beef, or may be enjoyed on its own.

    Founded by Bruce Cohn in 1984, B.R. Cohn Winery is located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley. The winery is surrounded by the 100-acre Olive Hill Vineyard where the soil is warmed by underground natural hot springs and gentle ocean breezes which create a unique micorclimate and ideal growing conditions. The winery currently produces Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot made entirely from grapes grown in the Olive Hill Vineyard, as well as Chardonnay from the Carneros Region.

    Red Wine

    A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.

    While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

    The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, cult status.

    Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

    The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, and remain active new frontiers for Rhône and Spanish varieties.

    Mendocino in California’s cool North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.

    Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
