We’ve been on a tear here at CV finding blockbuster deals on awe-inspiring wines. Keeping that hot streak alive we found another amazing wine from the packed award-winning stables of Jeff Cohn Cellars called Smoke & Mirrors.  The 2013 Smoke & Mirrors Red scored a healthy 91 points from Wine Advocate and we’re pumped because we can offer a Carpe Vino exclusive discount on this wonderful wine that is hard to beat!  FIFTEEN cases are in stock today ready to be picked up or shipped and they are priced to move.  But, once those final cases are gone, so is the incredible discount of $19.95/bottle on six +!

Winemaker Jeff Cohn burst into the wine scene by working for the “King of Zin” himself, Kent Rosenblum of the iconic Rosenblum Cellars.  It was there where Jeff’s passion for wine skyrocketed and he helped design the Rosenblum Rhône program that included fruit from the famous Rockpile Vineyard.  In fact, Jeff still sources grapes from this vineyard today.  However, Jeff’s true passion is for zinfandel and he produces unique blends from special select single vineyards that are some of the best in California.  If you like “Bold California Wines” with “French Sophistication” then here is another wine for you!

There is nothing deceptive about the 2013 Smoke & Mirrors Red Wine, however, the way the wine disappears in your glass will have you thinking otherwise.  Comprised of 37% zinfandel, 24% petite sirah, 24% syrah, 7% grenache, and 7% alicante bouschet, this Rhône inspired blend delivers with BOLD INTENSE JAW-DROPPING qualities.  With its wonderful bouquet of BLACKBERRY and STRAWBERRY JAM, it URGES you to taste what’s next.  You are then rewarded by JUICY, JAMMY, and RIPE flavors of BLACKBERRIES, BLACK CHERRIES, and PLUMS.  Then, to top it all off, the copious finish keeps everything BALANCED and LUSH.  This is the perfect wine to enjoy on its own but certainly would go nicely with grilled pork chops, roasted turkey, or perhaps with some nice Manchego cheese.

So, the best way to make sure you get some of this delicious wine in your cellar is to click the BUY SMOKE & MIRRORS NOWbutton.  Because once these final cases are gone, so is the $19.95/btl on 6+ discount!

Wine Advocate Notes: 91 Points“A blend of mostly Zinfandel and Petite Sirah, with smaller amounts of Grenache and Alicante Bouschet, Cohn’s 2013 Smoke and Mirrors (2,100 cases) tastes like a top flight Cotes du Rhone with its brambly berry fruits, licorice, crushed rock and hints of spring flowers. Fresh, lively, pure and quaffably good, yet also with plenty of class and first rate purity, it’s a terrific, beautifully made, medium-bodied, fruit-loaded red to buy by the case and enjoy over the coming 3-4 years.”
