91pts Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate

There's a reason that Mr. Parker's Wine Advocate refers to this Saint Cosme Cotes-du-Rhone as a "perennial bargain..from a vintage's lineup the is flat-out terrific": it's that good, and the price is nice and easy on the wallet. Pour your first glasses to enjoy with roquefort-stuffed mushrooms. It's a delicious combo. Barbecued baby backs with a side of bacon-heavy baked beans will go beautifully with the Cotes-du-Rhone as a meaty alternative. Or, pizza with onions, black olives and tomatoes. It goes without saying that a glass by itself is pretty darn tasty too.

Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "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.

From one of Gigondas's top producers, I guess it should be no surprise that this year's lineup is flat-out terrific. Drink from 2020-2025." Nov 2020

Winery:  "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."
