James Suckling Reviews

Cowhorn 2016 Grenache 6, 93 Points, $45

The number “6” refers to the number of hours of frost in the growing season. This has a wild array of complex red cherries and pomegranates. Orange peel, too. There’s a fresh, granular feel to the palate and a super long and fresh, mulberry and red-plum finish. Drink over the next six years.

Cowhorn 2013 Sentience Syrah, 92 Points, $45

This has a very fresh and vibrant core of blackberries and mulberries with a purple-cherry edge, as well as a gently meaty thread, fresh acidity and a long, lithe and juicy, red-plum finish. Drink over the next eight to ten years.

Cowhorn 2016 Viognier, 90 Points, $40

A fresh nose with white apricots and peaches that has gentle notes of stones, too. The palate has a smooth, fleshy feel with candied lemons, pears and melon and a fullish, poached-apple finish. Rich wine. Drink now.
