With respect to Barruol's negociant line of wines, called Saint-Cosme, the very good 2008 Cotes du Rhone is primarily Syrah, much of it coming from such cool areas as Vinsobres. Attractive notes of creosote, blackberries, black currants, licorice, and truffles are followed by a medium-bodied, admirably textured wine with excellent fruit and definition. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Readers looking for a tank-fermented and aged, 100% Syrah bursting with blackberry fruit should check out the 2001 St. Cosme Côtes du Rhône. It possesses good acidity, loads of fruit, not a great deal of complexity, but considerable body, sweetness, and glycerine. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. A Syrah such as this from California would cost $35-$50!

Toasty, with violet, fig bread and black currant notes laced with mocha and dark licorice hints. The fleshy, polished finish has a tobacco twinge to keep this honest. Drink now.

This dark and spicy 100% Syrah was made by Louis Barroul, a 14th-generation négociant-winemaker from Gigondas, in the southern Rhône. It captures the meaty, smoky majesty of far pricier red Rhônes, at least in the powerful, herb-infused bouquet. Grapey, spicy and front-loaded with fruit, the wine falls off in the finish, but by then you are well on your way to the next sip.
