Cosentino Winery is prestigiously located in Yountville, California and is the first winery located on the Saint Helena Highway. The Tasting Room is a very popular stop, attracting a myriad of visitors from all over the world, including connoisseurs, experts, Hollywood celebrities, rock stars, great chefs, local lovers, dreamers and beginners alike …everyone is welcome!
The winery is prominently located in the heart of the Napa Valley, situated on the border of Yountville and the Oakville Appellation, one of the most prestigious AVAs in the world that is home to some of Napa Valley’s greatest vineyards. Although the Cabernet Sauvignon varietal has undoubtedly propelled the Oakville AVA’s popularity throughout the wine world, Cosentino Winery has proven that the Merlot Varietal thrives just as wonderfully in Oakville’s unique terroir.
The Cab is produced using a combination of pump-over and pump cap fermentations for eight to fourteen days. Sixty percent of the blend is aged in French Oak cooperage, 20% in Eastern European Oak and 20% in American Oak for 20 months.
The taste has luscious, rich aromas which reveal dried cherries and cassis, with subtle hints of black tea. Steady progression leads to a finely crafted finish of black fruit, dark chocolate and well-woven tannins.
