This elegant wine is almost gold in color, with delectable flavors of honey and pear. The wine is medium-bodied but exquisitely balanced. It is subtly complex and suprisingly versatile. An amazing value.

Bright ruby-red. Raspberry, blackberry and Asian spices on the exotically perfumed nose. Sappy, palate-staining red fruit flavors show superb depth and a building spice character. A lively jolt of minerality adds lift to the finish, which features notes of bitter herbs and red berry liqueur. This wine unfurls slowly and should be stashed away to age for at least another five years.

The prodigious, full-bodied 2007 Gigondas Valbelle exhibits a dense purple color as well as a glorious perfume of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, dark cherries, and ink. It reveals prodigious concentration, a 45+-second finish, and no hardness or rough edges. The vintage's acids have given the wine tremendous aromatic and flavor freshness, delineation, and vibrancy despite its enormous size and richness. This wine should evolve for 10-15+ years.

A brilliant effort, the 2009 Cotes du Rhone Les Deux Albion is composed of Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvedre and Clairette, all co-fermented and aged in primarily concrete tanks and some of the newer wood tanks called tronconique. This potentially... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Chateau de Saint Cosme Cotes du Rhone les Deux Albion 750ml

Rich and dense, but velvety and nicely detailed, with sleek-edged cassis, blackberry and plum fruit woven with white pepper, mulled spice and dark olive notes. A strong, tangy, iron edge takes over on the finish, with lots of latent grip. Best from 2013 through 2022. 900 cases made. -JM As for the negociant northern Rhone selections, the dense purple-hued 2009 Cote Rotie reveals lots of black olive, bacon fat, black raspberry and blackberry fruit notes intertwined with hints of charcoal and underbrush. This impressively endowed, medium to full-bodied Cote Rotie should drink well for 10-15 years. Bright purple. Classic syrah aromas of cherry, boysenberry and violet, complicated by smoked meat, pipetobacco and licorice. Vibrant and sweet, showing impressive depth to its dark fruit preserve, anise and floral flavors. Tangy acidity and silky tannins give lift and shape to the long, floral finish. 100% Serine (Syrah)Soil : SchistesAged for 15 months in ne...

Inky ruby. Sexy, expansive aromas of blackberry, cola and allspice, with notes of apricot and anise adding complexity. Densely packed red and dark fruit flavors coat the palate, with sexy oak spice and floral nuances adding appeal. Rich and silky in ... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2009 St.-Joseph, which comes from a decomposed granite hillside vineyard in Malleval, has a dense purple color and a big, sweet kiss of crushed rock, blue and black fruits, black olives and earth. It is attractive, medium to full-bodied with load... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Saint Cosme, Chateau de St Joseph 750ml

Bright purple. More high-pitched than the straight Gigondas, showing vivid raspberry and floral scents and strong minerality. Juicy red berry flavors gain depth and power with air and take on a smoky, dried floral quality. The finish is spicy and impressively energetic, with lingering notes of smoke and minerals.
