Cosentino Winery Zinfandel California Cigarzin 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The CigarZin has notes of deep black fruit with a punch of spice and crushed black pepper on the nose. The rich, lush and well-structured wine is hearty with exotic fruit characteristics.

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. Cosentino Winery’s stellar vineyard sources and relationships are a major factor in sustaining its quality and consistency. Over the years, Cosentino Winery has been awarded the highest honors and praise, served at many prestigious events, including a Presidential White House State Dinner, the Masters Golf Champions Dinner, as well as various functions and events for Governors, Senators and Heads of State, such as Queen Elizabeth and the Prime Minister of Italy. Perhaps it’s no coincidence that Cosentino Winery is the first winery located on the St. Helena Highway (Hwy 29) when entering the Napa Valley from the south. Cosentino Winery sits on the border of Yountville and the Oakville appellation, one of the most prestigious AVA’s in the world that is home to some of the Napa Valley’s greatest vineyards. Since its doors opened in 1990, Cosentino Winery’s Tasting Room on Hwy 29 has been a popular stop, attracting a myriad of visitors, regular visitors, regulars, locals, connoisseurs, experts, so called experts, lovers, dreamers, enthusiasts, drifters, groupies, buyers and beginners alike…Everyone is welcome! Cosentino Winery produces more than 30 different varietals, continuing Mitch Cosentino’s artisan approach and passion for making great and interesting wines. “I don't eat just one type of food… so why should I make just one type of wine?” – Mitch Cosentino. The Cosentino Winery experience is unlike any other. Cosentino Winery continues to evolve, constantly creating new wines and discovering new ways to remain among the best in the world.

Ripe fruity nose. Tones of an old cheese. Spicy, peppery fruit. Powerfully flavored and layered palate. Juicy red berry with spice and pepper but great balance and complexity. Very nice! - Blind tasted at Schreiner's Winers zin tasting 9/18/10

I thought the initial tasting held a lot of full, fruity flavors, then added a little bit of an acidic, juicy and citric taste towards the end. Afterwards it smoothed out perfectly but I'd say this one is a little bit spicy, with bold raspberry, cherry accents and finish of citrus/acid. I really like it, pricing is right, it's just a bold choice.

Wine Tasting NotesPomegranate, raspberry, cherries, cassis and rhubarb flavors intermingle in a concentrated jammy style with briary notes. Elegant and smooth on entry, despite being big, rich, and mouthfilling throughout.
