Mission Briefing


The Lost Art

Sell out alert: Today’s 92 Point, Best of Class wine is very limited and will not last the day. Please make your purchase soon to avoid disappointment.

It is a true delight to find a white wine that has aged so well. Producing such a white wine is a lost art for many wineries, but Cosentino has perfected it with today’s 2008 Cosentino Winery Meritage, The Novelist.

The delightful brightness that comes from the Sauvignon Blanc is balanced by the wonderful complexity of the Sémillon. The Sémillon contributes delicious floral and savory notes in the wine.

Very few white wines are built for aging. Wineries often opt to produce ‘ready to drink’ wines that can be enjoyed soon after bottling. When a white is crafted to age, it is something quite special, indeed.

Tasting Profile


Light golden yellow with glinting highlights at the edges.


Very clean and very fresh with lovely notes of honeysuckle, lime leaf, lemon cucumber and green apple presenting up front. Underneath these, toasty vanilla and just a hint of fresh ginger add complexity.


Lime flower, lime, citrus peel, young white raspberry, honeysuckle and green apple give way to cantaloupe, limestone and a hint of caramel.


Bright fruit gradually gives way to caramel and dusky oak. At the very end, subtle flavors of ginger ale and anise emerge.


A big salad with fresh fig, spinach, walnuts and soft goat cheese would be an amazing pairing.
