2011 Cosentino Winery Zinfandel CigarZin
- > California
Community Tasting Notes 11
March 27, 2014 - Really ripe fruit on the nose but not nearly as sweet as it once was. Now, much more hard edged on the back end. I guess I feel like the RS helped it out.

February 23, 2014 - The wine looks crimson colored. It smells like red currant and prune. It tastes like prune. The body is light/medium. The wine has smooth texture. The wine finishes short. The wine has low acidity. Very Light for a Zin not what I was expecting has not structure.

January 24, 2014 - Sigh. I am trying to go through all my newer Cosentinos as quickly was possible since it just makes me so sad. The winery used to be near the top of my list of favorites. Since the winery was bought out, however, it has slipped into mediocrity. This wine is the perfect example--the wine is fine, but exceedingly boring. None of the smoky character of the Cigar Zins of old. Double sigh. thedrunkencyclist.com

October 27, 2013 - I enjoyed this with dinner. It's fruity with some spice and hint of vanilla in the finish.
