Chateau Saint Cosme, Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2021 (France)
Producer Notes: 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.
Wine Spectator, 89 Points: Cassis, violet and blackberry flavors are round and supple on the palate in this dark red, with charred cedar, smoked meat and pepper adding depth and range. A densely structured version.
