The Mouth-Filling 2018 Saint Cosme, Cotes du Rhone


Saint Cosme is the negociant label distinct from Château de Saint Cosme.  Do not hesitate to try the 2018 Saint Cosme, Cotes du Rhone  for the quality of the fruit purchased from Vinsobres and Villafranchian is excellent.  The wine is somewhat unique as it is pure Syrah fermented with indigenous yeasts then raised in cement vats.  This is a wine to drink young in its grapey state but it absolutely requires several hours of air to show best.  An outstanding value for $13 at MacArthur Beverages.

2018 Saint Cosme, Cotes du Rhone – $13 at MacArthur Beverages
Imported by by Winebow.  This wine is 100% Syrah fermented and aged in cement vat.  Alcohol 14.5%.  Young, rounded berry fruit on the nose.  This is a grapey, rather young berry-fruited wine highlighted by juicy acidity.  With several hours of air, your impression will change as it reveals some serious concentration.  The fruit fills the mouth with a spicy, savory hint before the graphite and fat infused finish.  *** Now – 2021.
