Cosentino Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Many of the lots were punch cap fermented in one ton bins between 7-11 days. Small lots were tank fermented. Each was barrel aged separately in predominantly French oak for 32 months. They were selected, blended and racked before bottling. The wine is unfined. Napa County Bordeaux meets Napa Valley. Although varietally Cabernet Sauvignon, this unusual wine is a Bordeaux-blend that is composed of three varietals; Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. Flinty mineral notes combine with hints of black rose and vanilla.

Cosentino is not a well known winery; however, I have never been dissapointed in their reds. The Cab is a great value. Good smooth finish.
