St Cosme Cotes du Rhone 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 Cotes du Rhone shows bright fruit followed by a well-structured mouth with a good texture. Two sources have composed this wine for many years now: Vinsobres brings the freshness, the complexity, the strenght and the relief. The "villafranchiennes terraces" from the Gard area (huge terraces of rolling stones) generate the color, the power, and the generosity of a southern syrah. The Syrah from the southern Rhone has a fresh fruit full of charm. In this wine, you will find notes of blackcurrant, oriental spices, licorice and violet.

Black berries and a bunch of blue berries dominate the nose with additional oak (slight), vanillin, spice and pepper this is a lush, full mouth wine. Excellent with food, this is only lacking in aftertaste (short), otherwise this typical Saint-Cosme. Drink now - Paul 89 points
