The Saint Cosme Côtes du Rhône Red is sourced from Syrah vines rooted deep amid the limestone and clay rich soils in the Vinsobres and Villafranchiennes du Gard vineyards of the Rhône valley. Fermented in concrete vats with natural yeasts, this Côtes du Rhône Red is exemplary of its class.

Tasting Notes

The Saint Cosme Côtes du Rhône Red is a deep plum with violet reflections. Aromas of bright berry fruits and licorice give way to a medium bodied palate with elegant flavors of red currant and gingerbread.

Food Pairing

The peppery components of this 100% Syrah based Côtes du Rhône pairs well with spicy BBQ and grilled meats, roast pork and aged, hard cheeses
