Cosentino Winery Ol'

Member Review by glpease:

This is a confused wine, a wine with serious case of multiple personality disorder. When I uncorked it, I found myself identifying it as Syran, then Zin, then Mourvedre. It seemed like there wasn't a red varietal that didn't assert itself in some way. So, I went to the web to look it up. Sure enough, just about every red grape known to western civilization is in this wine. No wonder it's confused! At the price I paid at Grocery outlet, it's a no-branier. At the retail, not so much. It's a fun wine, would be great at a BBQ, but for a serious meal, you're better off looking for something that exhibits a more focused varietal character. Three and a half glasses for its boldness, its fruit, it's pure enjoyment potential. If it had some direction, it would have gotten that extra half-glass.

How did I find this wine? Being an ex smoker, I always LOVE a wine that has a tobacco aroma. Now asking at my local wine shop....I was told this is a blend of wines with a leather feel. At the same time, I was told this is it ... there is no plans to restock. So I asked myself, did I just find a piece of heaven at a good price? Well, it is a mix of everything. Meaning, it is truly a mix of varieties to make another line to suit everyone. It was nothing I was looking for in a red and my first lesson of any wine shop using the "mix" to fulfill any flavor someone is looking to find. So here is the dilemma. Go into it with a open mind with no intentions and you may like it. If your tiring to find something, it falls short. I plan to have fun with other wine shops on the true intent of this wine. Bottom line it is a mix that never took off and there is no demand for it. Most wine shops did the first order and will put it on sale by year end to make shelf space.
