Cosentino Winery Zinfandel California Cigarzin 2011
This is an incredible zin!
Three and a half glasses
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.
