California: Napa Valley
All Time Favorite
Agent Red’s Top Selection for 2013 is today’s 2007 pureCoz Red Blend! The wine also won Best of Class: Gold Medal 96 points at the Los Angeles International Wine and Spirits Awards.
There is a great reason that Mitch Cosentino is our best-selling and most beloved winemaker of these last six years: his wines always deliver the goods. And then some!
Today’s 2007 pureCoz Red Blend is an extraordinary blend that our entire tasting panel went bonkers for. This wine is an elegant and perfectly balanced blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21.5% Cabernet Franc, 21.5% Merlot, and 14% Sangiovese.
This very highly recommended wine hails from the decade-high 96 point 2007 vintage (Robert Parker). We have been urging our Operatives to stock up on 2007s - while they still can. We will absolutely be stocking up on today’s masterpiece from our friend Mitch!
Dark and rich, with darkest ruby hues.
Bursting with berry fruit, including dark cherry, smoky dark raspberry, wild strawberry, blackberry and dried blueberry. Underneath these are spiced cherry candy, briar patch, sweet tobacco and sweet brown spice.
Packed with robust, concentrated and dark flavors of softly spiced black cherry, blackberry, supple leather, black currant, subtle black licorice, subtle crushed violets and deep rose petal.
Exceedingly long and very elegant with broad and persistent flavors all across the mid-palate.
Enjoy this big wine with something equal to its breadth and elegance. A lovely Filet Mignon or a leg of lamb with rosemary comes to mind.
