Sip This: Daniel Cohn 2015 Bellacosa Cabernet Sauvignon


Daniel Cohn’s family sold its B.R. Cohn Winery, famed for its cabs and olive oil, a couple of years back, and instead of just counting his cash, Daniel decided it was time to start anew. Enter this flagship of his own brand, Bellacosa, a cabernet sauvignon sourced from vineyards throughout the North Coast appellation. Think big fruit, black pepper, and hints of cocoa, all layered with some serious oak — Robert Parker has praised the wine (hint, hint) — but it’s still in balance and a fine match with something meaty at the table.

Best of all, it retails at about $25 a bottle, so it’s a fine entry point into the world of Sonoma cabs without too harsh a sticker price.
