  • 2015 Saint-Cosme Châteauneuf-du-Pape – France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1/2/2019)

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of potpourri, plums and berries. Flavors of berries, cherries and plums. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied.. OK now with some air but I’d lean towards holding a few more years. Seems like it is just now emerging from a shutdown. (92 points)
