WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

Be warned – this is a stellar vintage, the greatest since the extraordinary 2010. Of course, 2016 is great too, and even 2015, which in Saint Cosme was memorable. But there is a freshness, an intensity, an evanescence, something undefinable that is charming and vibrant in the 2019s. Blackberry, smoked bacon, charcoal, blueberry, rose.

TASTING NOTES:

While the 2019 Cotes du Rhone is not a single-estate wine (it's labeled simply Saint Cosme, without the "Château de"), this 100% Syrah is a perennial bargain—and this could be its best vintage to date. Aromas of violets, cracked pepper, cassis and blueberries leap from the glass, while the medium to full-bodied palate is ripe but silky, leading into a long, mouthwatering finish. A blend of fruit from the Gard (the right bank of the Rhône) and Vinsobres (the left bank, about 400 meters above sea level), it retains a sense of freshness not often found in Syrahs from the Southern Rhône.

- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 91 pts. 

Black cherry compote and granite introduce this rich, velvet-textured red. It’s a full-bodied, voluminous sip packed with luscious preservedplum flavor but balanced neatly by fresh acidity and a fringe of cocoa powder tannins. A weighty Côtes du Rhône that should drink at peak through 2025.

- Wine Enthusiast, 91 pts. 

Ripe and friendly, with a blast of plum and boysenberry compote flavors laced with licorice and backed by a twinge of lavender on the plump finish.

- Wine Spectator, 90 pts.
