The Little James Basket Press Red by Saint Cosme is the embodiment of the phrase "creative freedom." Comprised primarily of Grenache, this red is fermented in concrete vats and added to a solera system for complexity. Containing a blend of vintages dating back to 1999, this wine is the emblematic of over 15 years of expertise.

Tasting Notes

Ruby red in color with rich aromas of brandied cherry, gingerbread and strawberry compote. The Saint Cosme Little James Basket Press Red has a medium-body, easy-drinking palate with a juicy, yet peppery finish.

Food Pairing

Pairs well with fettuccini Bolognese and eggplant.
