Saint-Cosme Côtes du Rhône les Deux Albion 2005
This is a very well-made Rhone with a complex nose of dark fruit, blackberry, wood, spice, and pepper. Many of the aromas from the nose can be picked out on the palate as well. I really liked the structure of this wine. Medium-body with very firm, mouth-drying tannins. Good length on the finish. I think that this wine presents a good value at only about $15 per bottle in my locale. I would definitely recommend this wine to fans of Cotes du Rhone.
