Food Pairings for Cosentino Winery Zinfandel California Cigarzin
This is an incredible zin!
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.
Slightly nutty, very ripe fruits one of my favorites so far.
My first exposure to Cigarzin was just recently. A group of my co-workers got together and had a variety of pizzas plus some Indian food to eat. One of the guys brought a bottle of the 2005 Cigarzin. Even though our food pairing was a bit of a hodge-podge, the wine was great. I can't wait to try it again with a meal that will do it justice.
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
a little too sweet for me...like biting into a superripe plum. but i guess that's not so bad. a softer zin with round edges, good for those who want one that doesn't make their knees buckle.

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.
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.
