Cosentino Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Estate 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Very aromatic with spicy cherry, currants, clove and earthy notes on the nose. Full bodied and rich, it expands on the mouth to a very complex wine, with ripe cherries, plums and blood orange flavors. A well balanced style with good tannin structure. Powerful and bright, this tasty Cab will handle rich, spicy, full throttle cuisine.

Cosentino Winery, Napa Valley, was established in 1990 when Mitch Cosentino moved his winery operation from Modesto, California to its current location on Highway 29 in Yountville, California. Lead by Mitch Cosentino’s vision and innovative winemaking approach, Cosentino Winery established itself long ago as a trend setter in the California wine industry, widely recognized for producing more ultra premium varietals than any other winery in the Napa Valley as well as pioneering production methods and wine blends that are now standards in the industry. Cosentino Winery produces approximately 12,000 cases of wine per year, handcrafted from the wineries’ Yountville and Pope Valley Estates as well as from many of the same “Estate” grape sources that Mitch has maintained throughout the Napa Valley for nearly 20 years.

Offers a pretty array of ripe plum and cherry flavors before tannins step in, adding cedar and tobacco to the finish. Try in 1997.

This isn't a wine to cellar. But it's a beautiful young wine now, one of the most attractive '02s around to accompany a fine meal. It's intricate in cassis and oak flavors, with flamboyantly ripe, complex tannins and crisper acidity than Napa usually offers. Seems to improve with every sip.

The dark ruby-colored 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a spicy, earthy, cassis- scented nose of light to moderate intensity, full body, excellent richness and purity, adequate acidity, a judicious touch of smoky oak, and a plump, fleshy, soft finish. Drink it over the next 5-8 years.



Very aromatic with spicy cherry, currants, clove and earthy notes on the nose. Full bodied and rich, it expands on the mouth to a very complex wine, with ripe cherries, plums and blood orange flavors. A well balanced style with good tannin structure. Powerful and bright, this tasty Cab will handle rich, spicy, full throttle cuisine.
