Gigondas St.Cosme 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

91 Points, Wine Spectator: "Offers a solid, fleshy feel, with lots of crushed plum, warm raspberry and steeped black cherry fruit flavors rolled together. Notes of black tea, licorice root and alder fill in on the finish. Very well done for the vintage. Drink now through 2020" 10/15 90 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous: Ruby-red. Red berries, lavender and peppery spices on the fragrant nose. Juicy and fleshy on the palate, offering gently sweet cherry and raspberry flavors and a suave floral pastille nuance. Shows very good depth and energy on the finish, which lingers with repeating florality and round, even tannins." 5/16 90 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting with the classic cuvée, the 2013 Gigondas comes from a variety of terroir and is made from 60% Grenache and 20% each of Syrah and Mourvedre. Vinified with 100% whole clusters and aged twelve months in older smaller barrels and concrete tanks, it offers classic Saint Cosme notes of black currants, mulberries, licorice and peppery spice in a medium-bodied, moderately concentrated, yet beautifully balanced style the palate. It’s ideal for drinking anytime over the coming 5-7 7 years." 3/16 #223
