Cosentino Winery Zinfandel Lodi the Zin 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Liquorama Tasting Notes While we are on the subject of the wine, what a beauty it is! On the nose one can detect the developing aromas of raspberry, and blackberry with just a touch of cinnamon and sage. The body is medium to full with real gripping acidity and medium tannins to suggest that while delicious now, this will soften up and mellow with time to become the ying to the yang of braised short ribs, or even eggplant parmesan and roasted portobello mushrooms. Well, that or just grill up a couple of burgers and drink The Zin out of a tumbler. I judged a wine competition with Mitch once and trust me, he's not so snobby that he wouldn't. He's a down to earth guy and he makes fantastic wines at down to earth prices. Wine Tasting Notes The Lodi District is known for growing Californias best Zinfandel. THE ZIN is not only 100% Zinfandel, but all 100% Lodi of which 80% is from Old Vines. The wine is aged for 9 months, primarily in American and European oak, with some French oak barrels. The wine is unfined. Exotically rich, it is black fruit oriented with notes of black cherry, currants and blackberry spiced with black pepper.

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.

Aromas of black pepper, currants and blackberry. Dense black fruit on the palate with nice weight, layers of cinnamon and clove and well rounded tannins. Great bold and robust zin, but not out of balance. - Tasted at winery 4/19/10
