Cosentino Cigar Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  698142

This is a nicely poised and detailed cabernet. The name led me to expect an overtly smoky even chocolaty style but it is actually nicely restrained and pretty with typical cab notes of currant/berry fruit, fine herbs and moderate oak. It is medium to full bodied, quite smooth with balanced acidity and tannin. Very good to excellent length. Perhaps give it another year, but also drinkable now with a bit of aeration. Score - 90.
