Saint Cosme 2020 Cotes-du-Rhone Rouge

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Saint Cosme Côtes-du-Rhône is produced from Syrah and is from the rocky and cool vineyards of Vinsobres and the stony Villafranchian terraces of the Gard. Vinsobres brings freshness and complexity while the terraced vineyards of the Gard contribute color and power. The wine is partially destemmed, fermented with natural yeasts, and vinified in concrete vats.

Syrah requires a warm climate to fully ripen but enough moderating effect to produce intense, aromatic wines that are not overwhelmed by sweetness and alcohol. This Syrah grows in ideal terroirs of the southern Rhône and shows the varietal’s typical spicy notes of sandalwood, violets, and black pepper.

Syrah, with its deep flavors and firm tannins, is a natural match for grilled or smoked meat and dishes featuring herbs, roasted mushrooms, and onions. Seared venison or beef with black pepper and thyme or a Moroccan tagine of pigeon or chicken are complimented by the spicy characteristic of Syrah.

"The 2020 Côtes Du Rhône, which is mostly Syrah, is a bigger, richer wine delivering more weight and texture. Lots of dark, peppery, chocolate fruit as well as medium body, round tannins, and solid length on the finish make for a rock-solid Côtes Du Rhône." Jeb Dunnick 88 Points
