Saint Cosme Cote Roti Syrah Viognier Red France Syrah Viognier Rhone 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Syrah. Aged for 15 months in new oak barrels. From six terroirs of the Cote brune side and three terroirs from the Cote blonde side. Depth and complexity are the most accurate words to explain the tasting with words, only words...because the vines were stressed by drought, the alcohol level didn't go too high and the balance of the wine is great.
