Cosentino – The Poet Meritage 2012 – Napa Valley

(55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 11% Petit Verdot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec) The nose is fruity, well-built and offers a small intensity. It reveals notes of red fruits, cassis and fine notes of blackberry associated with small hints of spice and a fine note of cigar. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers minerality, a nice freshness, fat and juiciness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy cassis, blackberry and fine touches of raspberry associated with discreet hint of wild berries as well as fine hints of sweet spices. Tannins are well built. Good length and persistence. The finish is relatively powerful.
