2007 B. R. Cohn, Sonoma Valley, Zinfandel
Tasting Notes

The 2007 Zinfandel is produced from grapes selected from
the finest Zinfandel vineyards in the Sonoma Valley. This
combination yields a blend of berry and cherry aromas
mingled with the bouquet of creamy vanilla custard and a
hint of peppercorn and clove. The 2007 Zinfandel is
full-bodied and warm with a long smooth berry flavored
finish. B.R. Cohn Zinfandel is aged for 18 months in
carefully chosen French and American oak barrels.

He then continued his education for an MBA with an emphasis in marketing and management.  
In the vineyard, Tom works intimately with each block, farming by taste. With a focus on aroma
and balanced flavors, Tom picks some blocks row by row, taking into consideration the
differences in terrior. He requires thinning of both canopy and crop, when nature doesn’t, to
achieve optimum berry development and concentration.

Tom loves the hands-on nature of his work and is committed to making the absolute best
wines possible here at B.R. Cohn Winery. He and Bruce Cohn are often here to greet visitors to
our picturesque county estate.
