2015 Saint Cosme, Côtes-du-Rhône
Rhone Valley, France
91 Points, Wine Spectator: “Ripe, with vivid blueberry and boysenberry fruit that’s harnessed on the back end by a bold graphite edge. Anise and violet notes add range. Drink now through 2019.”
Fermented in concrete vats with natural yeasts, this 100% Syrah based Côtes du Rhône pairs well with BBQ ribs, grilled meats, roast pork and aged, hard cheeses.
