My immediate response to this wine is: why pay more? The robe is sombre (dark) - completely opaque, in point of fact. The nose is reminiscent of port-dipped tobacco, cola and brandy-infused maraschino cherry. Rather over the top description for a CdR - is it not? But the hyperbole doesn't stop there: the palate receives a full-force attack of the killer cherry-colas - a result, no doubt of this being a 100% Syrah wine! Exceptional in every way, this wine can spar with good wines in the 30-50 dollar range. Buy a case and have a party. Will age a couple of years with the tannin structure, but why bother?

The nose seemed to sway between fruit and earth, at first showing intense red berry, then pepper, herbal notes with fresh turned soil and a hint of bacon fat. Each time I put this to my nose, I seemed to find something slightly different. On the palate it was silky smooth yet juicy with dark cherry and black pepper. The finish was dry with palate coating tannin and a hint of perceptible heat. I’m interested in seeing where this may go with a year or two in the cellar.

AUD$20 at Vintage Cellars. Saint Cosme is probably more famous for their Gigondas and Grenache wines but the Cotes du Rhone is 100% syrah from Vinsobres and La Garde which marries fruit born to red clay and sandy limestone. Intense back ruby colour, with a complex aromatic profile of blackberry, used espresso grains and savoury hint of curry powder / curry leaf. Smooth velvet texture, a full-bodied wine with high acidity that is partially hidden by plush flavours of blackberry, black currant, hint of anise and minerality. Tannins are soft and even, resulting in a long tapering finish. Drink now – 2017.

This wine has a full nose of dark fruits, blackberry and dried black cherries, jammy and peppery. This wine seem light with hints of raspberry. There are some oaky notes and green pepper flavors. All and all I enjoyed this wine very much. It was well rounded with some sturdy tannins and nice tiddy finish.

This has lush, silky-textured layers of dark plum, anise and crushed blackberry fruit, woven with black tea and graphite notes through the finish. Impresses with its length and depth.
