Holiday Sentience Trio

This holiday collection arrives as a ready to give holiday gift: gift box with hand-tied bow, custom card with envelope, the detailed story of how Cowhorn's Sentience came to be, a personal letter from Cowhorn's Owner and Winemaker and one bottle of each of the following wines:
 
2011 Sentience “Deep ruby. Powerful mineral-driven dark berry licorice and violet scents along with smoke and cola accents in the background. Gently sweet blackberry cherry and floral pastille flavors are given spine and sharpened by a smoky mineral quality. Fine-grained tannins firm a very long focused finish that leaves bitter cherry and cracked pepper notes behind.”—91 points Antonio Galloni’s Vinous also received 91 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.
 
2013 Sentience “The 2013 Sentience was picked 16-23 October, a selection of barrels that has more structure. It includes 43% whole cluster fruit and is aged for nine months in 39% new French oak. It is tightly wound on the nose with blackberry, boysenberry and undergrowth scents accompanied by a sprig of wild mint. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy black fruit, good weight and structure in the mouth, a slight edginess towards the finish with tightly coiled energy. This is more masculine than the 2011 and there is more salinity (almost brine-like) lingering on the aftertaste. This has good potential.”—92 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate also received 92 points Antonio Galloni’s Vinous.
 
2014 Sentience  This elegant, yet powerful Winemaker’s blend of Syrah highlights its old world origins with concentrated aromas of ripe cherries and flavors of red currant, dark chocolate and a hint of cola as well. All these offerings are framed in French oak and structured with natural acids that add citrusy high tones and provoke a long and lingering, yet refreshing finish—Not Yet Rated

2013 Reserve Syrah

True to its cool climate origin, Syrah from the Cowhorn Vineyard embraces aromatic expressions of blue fruit through gamey meat and earthy spice—the full spectrum. This barrel selection of Syrah, a balance of 50% new French oak and 50% whole-cluster fermentation, offers harmonious, elegant nuances.  Notes of black plums and forest floor, spicy high tones and ripe blackberries are all layered together with polished tannins. This wine is designed to age for years to come. We recommend trying one every six months to experience the evolution.

2016 Spiral 36

This traditional Rhône inspired blend of Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne is carefully crafted to exhibit all three varietals in their own unique way. The nose is quick to offer delicate floral undertones, followed by warm almonds and ginger. The mouthfeel is rich and complex with notes of banana cream pie, crisp and refreshing coconut, and keeps the refreshment going through the finish similar to a fresh ripe peach.  This vintage has the potential to be our best ambassador yet.

2015 Marsanne Roussanne

From our original plantings 11 years ago, this co-fermented blend of Marsanne and Roussanne shows that the vines are still adding new flavors to the fruit.  Along with the honey and hazelnut flavors we've come to love, this vintage adds lime and papaya plus a hint of herbal tea that teases your palate. The result is a well-balanced richness with refreshment.

2016 Viognier

This Viognier offers big aromas and flavors plus sweet and succulent salinity. Aromas and flavors emphasize pear and peach with a generous dose of minerality. Natural acids balance the grape’s native sweetness so it won’t exhaust your palate after a few sips. With no malolactic fermentation and a small amount of new oak, this wine feels smooth and round in your mouth and then tapers away to an elegant yet refreshing finish.

2015 Reserve Viognier

For Viognier lovers, we offer our most opulent version ever, sourced from our oldest vines. Notes of honey, fig, apple, guava and lychee flavors laced with citrus and white chocolate flood your palate. Well-integrated oak warms your palate before the long finish begins. Deliciously decadent, the wine is plush now and will continue to age for years to come.

2014 Grenache 8

Our block of hardy, untrellised Grenache vines endured only 8 hours of frost in the 2014 growing season--and still captured the cool climate nuance of the Cowhorn vineyard. You might catch a quick whiff of grilled pancetta before the flavors of ripe red raspberries take over, spreading polished tannins everywhere with gentle but firm authority. Toasty oak notes lift the finish on this reassuringly weighty wine. Best of all is the balance: sweet and savory, soft yet structured all at once. Usually we say that Grenache is the ultimate food wine, but you may find yourself enjoying this one on its own.

2014 Syrah 8

Generous upon entry, the flavors remind you it is Cowhorn with deep notes of fresh blueberries leading you into a distinct mid-palate of freshly unearthed mushrooms and gentle notes of cracked black pepper. On the palate, the wine is full with soft tannins and an aromatic finish. A touch of Viognier gives a nice weight to this food-friendly classic Syrah.
