Saint Cosme St. Joseph is a pure expression Syrah with a history that dates back to the seventeenth century. Named by the Monks and planted by the Jesuits, these vineyards are rich in history and create wines teeming with youthful fruit.

Tasting Notes

Tobacco, wild strawberry and toasted bread aromas radiate on the nose of this Saint Cosme St. Joseph, while the ripe cherry and leathery nuances grace the palate. The characteristic acidity speaks to the magic of the Rhône climate, leading to a long, and balanced finish.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with spareribs in a hoisin glaze.
