This wine made its debut in 1988 by winemaker/designer Mitch Cosentino. This is the third vintage of M. Coz that has been made under Cosentino's PureCru brand since 2009. It continues the tradition of only being bottled in extremely limited quantities when it is equal or superior to the greatest wines in the world made with Bordeaux red grape varietals.
