92 Points, Editor’s Choice
Cowhorn 2012 Viognier, Applegate Valley, $30

Sean Sullivan: Coming from a single block of the winery’s estate vineyard, this 100% varietal wine provides a magic trick. The sweet, full-bodied white peach, honeysuckle and vanilla aromas and flavors do not show any of the oiliness or excess alcohol that might be expected at this level of ripeness. Instead, it’s all flavor, showing remarkable depth and concentration that persists through the last sip. — (6/1/2014)

92 Points, Cellar Selection
Cowhorn 2010 Syrah 58, Applegate Valley, $45

Sean Sullivan: A vibrantly expressive wine, with notes of pomegranate, ground cranberries, freshly blossomed wild flowers and incense. It’s puckering, rich and concentrated, with youthful tart cherry flavors. Near overwhelming in its intensity, it needs time in the cellar to fully stitch together but has all the stuffing to go the distance; best after 2017. — (6/1/2014)
