1990 Cosentino Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

6/28/2014 - oldwines Likes this wine: 93 points

This bottle was not as good as the last one but better than the one before that. Medium to dark ruby color. Nose has toast, vanilla, dark berry, and a little minty chocolate. Flavors dominated by black raspberry, cassis, mint and just a bit more austere than the previous bottle that was a good deal richer than this one.

My wife opened this bottle to drink with some friends with chips and salsa! She apparently didn't notice the 1997 Reserve on the label...hopefully they enjoyed it...

Platinum Tasting - '94 & '97 California Cabs (Tasted Blind) (Andre's House): Lighter color than the other wines in this line-up.
Gorgeous nose, some brett (B++). Rustic and yet fruity palate (B+/B++).
My #6, Group's #7 (63 pts). Tasted blind.

Platinum Tasting - '94 & '97 California Cabs (Tasted Blind) (Andre's House): Slightly cloudy. Generous nose. Green, stemmy. Still a little bit tanninc. Short finish.
Tasted blind and (incorrectly) thought this was a 10+ years old Cabernet Franc.

Of the six bottles I bought, this may be the one that maintained the wine the best. I bought all six bottles at the winery, but found inconsistency between bottles and generally cork issues. I would be concerned to purchase wine from this winery in the future.

As I wrote previously, the wine is well balanced but is past peak. Still enjoyable, if you have in your cellar this is the time to drink it.

Rich, deep dark red color. Much different experience than my last bottle. Surprisingly little age showing. Fragrant nose with earthy mint, plum and cedar. Rich and round mouthfeel. Young feeling and complex. Great with grilled steaks. Definitely the surprise of the night and showing better than the '78 Ch Giscours, '86 Ch Talbot, '01 Dunn Napa Cab and '96 Rocce dei Manzoni Vigna de la Roul Barolo.

Dark chocolate covered cherry on the nose. Aromas of black cherry, currant and hints of camphor and mint. Light blackberry. On the palat, it's rich and supple. Very smooth with good balance and structure. Luscious, feminine and pretty. Very tasty.

1997 Cosentino Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

Napa Valley more

2/12/2013 - oldwines wrote: 92 points

Bought from a clearance sale at the winery last summer for $30 and shipped through Hurricane Sandy. I'm not sure how this wine has been treated but it seems to fare pretty well. The cork on opening was dry and lacked much staining making me wonder if it was upright for an extended period before I got it, but the bottle itself was stained by sediment on one side indicating for most of its life it was stored properly. The wine showed some age in its color with brick red edges in the glass. The nose was mostly oak/vanilla, tar, cedar and black fruit. It has nice body, mouthfeel and balance. Flavors evolved with breathing and after 3-4 hours there was a lot of black plum, black currant and chocolate. This could have been a problem bottle but wasn't bad in the end. I'm sensing potential for a good deal of bottle variation though...

Dark Garnet with no bricking and thick slow moving legs. Decanted and drunk over 4 hours. Nose is initially strong on oak, cassis and black plum. Later you get cedar, leather, coffee and chocolate as well. Lively on the tongue with some remaining tannin but very smooth on the whole and very mouth-watering. Flavors include the fruits in the nose as well as vanilla, blackberry jam and tea. Moderately long smooth, rich finish lasting 20-30 seconds with a strong chocolate element which I love..

Medium ruby color with a hint of brick on the edge. Long thick legs. Nose has some evergreen, menthol and leather. Fairly rich flavor profile, with some vanilla, earth, spice and plummy darker fruit. Mouthfeel is bright and lively but not tannic but also not silky. Aftertaste is not too long but has a nice coffee note at the end. The next evening I had the rest left in the bottle and it was very rich jammy and chocolaty along with a leathery earthiness. I think I should upgrade my score from 90. I very much enjoyed it as it evolved. This should have a good 5 years at least in the cellar.

Light, almost strawberry color (more like a Pinot noir), with moderate viscosity and shows a bit of age. Nose is of light red berries and charcoal with some mint. Flavors are flinty, minty and raspberry. Mouthfeel is a bit light and minerally. There is some acidity on the finish but the aftertaste doesn't last very long. These notes are taken immediately after decanting.after another few hours I expected this to dry out and die...but it didn't, it showed lots of finesse, softened in the mouth but also maintained its delicate flavors. It went great with grilled filet mignon and roasted rosemary, truffle potatoes. Originally scored 89, I upgraded it later in the evening.

2001 Cosentino Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Auction Reserve Hoopes Ranch Vineyard

11/7/2012 - CarpeVinoDiem wrote: 91 points

No notes taken.

Decanted 1 hr.

Decent 1/3 liquid sign cork, only slight sediment.

Nose: Classic blackberry pie with some cedar.

Big 3% milk body.

Taste classic blackberry, cedar, some brown sugar, nutmeg, white chocolate.
Nice tannins on the end.

Probably the best Cos Cab Sauv I have had so far (eager to try the '02 Secret Clone, which rates even higher).

Classic modern napa cab finesse now, and can easily develop further in a few yrs.

Ideal with tannin food (steak, beef roast, ribs).

91 pts.

Absolutely and completely delicious. Opened and let breath for an hour in the bottle and drank over the next three. It opened up very nicely with great fruit and a long finish. Exactly what I was hoping for with a nice aged Cali cab.

Surprisingly intact, though just hanging in there. Mature reddish brown at the rim. As it opens it gets a bit slack-jawed. There's some coffee and cocoa in the nose along with fading red fruits and underbrush. A little syrupy and dull in the mouth, struggling for a positive finish. I'm giving it the benefit of a doubt cause I had to put most of the bottle in the fridge overnight and oddly, it tasted pretty good when cold. However, the warmer it got, the older and more tired it seemed.
