Here’s a great wine we just got in just in time for the Equinox. Everything is in balance and the flavors have a great Autumnal depth. No smoky taste but we have had enough of that in the air at present.
2020 Saint Cosme, Cotes du Rhone $14
100% Syrah coming out of the southern Rhône but this has become one of the signature wines of the prestigious Gigondas producer Château de Saint Cosme. Crushed cherry and plum puree notes that meld with melted red licorice before singed juniper takes over on the finish.
