First Date white gets 95 Points

Jeff Cohn Jeff Cohn (JC Cellars) has been at it for 20+ years since he started his career at Ridge and Rosenblum.  His own label has been on fire as of late.  To finish up the summer I wanted to introduce a fun wine – The First Date, a Rousanne and Marsanne (White Rhone varietals) blend.

A beautiful combination of dried apricots, bitter almonds and orange blossom. Liquid mineral notes soar from the glass, while the golden hue draws you in for a taste that is overflowing with full bodied sweet almond extract, flint notes, exotic ginger, dried peaches and apricots. This wine has enough structure to drink as an aperitif or to age gracefully and hold its own with the richest of foods.

Pair With: Perfect combination for all types of fowl, both wild or farm raised. Goes well with fish, shell fish or rich meats such as veal or pork. Also enjoy this with young or slightly aged goat cheese. Drink now to 5 years

Jeff Cohn says: “The wine of amazing intensity! There is a pureness to this wine, or is it more of a structured feel that set this First Date apart from past vintages. The wine comes across lusher, more flamboyant and I dare to say more seductive than the past.”
