California: Napa Valley
Mitch Cosentino never fails to delight us with his creations. Today’s PureCru 2010 Purety is a lush and lively white blend that over-delivers. Especially at our delightfully low price!
With wonderful balance, bright aromatics and enough flavor to make the wine very interesting, this is a white blend that’ll have your guests thoroughly impressed. Even the heavy glass bottle screams high-end.
Mouthwatering and velvety on the palate, this wine really begins to shine - and soften -when enjoyed at a temperature that is somewhere between chilled and room-temp.
If you love complex but still incredibly delicious whites, this is one that we offer to you with our fullest recommendation.
Glinting golden yellow with perfect clarity from core to edge.
Bright and fragrant with balanced citrus and floral aromas. Out in front, lively and fresh Kaffir lime, lime flower and lemongrass. These are closely followed by subtle notes of hazelnut and toasty vanilla.
Bright and very smooth, the wine presents a cascade of silky flavors that perfectly mimic the nose.
Long, soft and lingering with a mouthwatering brightness that carries flavors out to the very end.
Enjoy this very food-friendly and flexible wine with a wide variety of foods, including seafood, fruits and cheeses - or even a spicy pollo asada!

Winemaker Mitch Cosentino
Mitch Cosentino began making wine in small lots in Modesto, California in 1980. Ten years later he moved the Cosentino Winery operation to the Napa Valley, where he continued to make many award-winning varietal and blended wines.
Mitch has a gift for identifying fruit sources and is highly skilled and artistic in determining blends. He’s a big believer in the hands-on, old world use of punched cap fermentation, a labor-intensive, hand-crafted method of winemaking. When it comes to the small lots Cosentino puts into his pureCru blends, this “micro” approach to winemaking allows him to better control the delicate process from the vineyard to the bottle.
Mitch has won close to two thousand awards and medals through his 30 year wine career, including the prestigious Andre Tchelistcheff Award for best red wine at the New World Wine Competition, and best Winemaker for Winery of the Year at the San Francisco International Wine Competition.
