I love these wines that are most definitely not playing to the masses. Medium garnet with a wide brim. The nose is highly attractive fresh out of the gate. A ridiculous amount of fruit here with blackberries, black cherries, and strawberries. Eucalyptus and smoke. Herbs and spice. Beautiful earth and foresty goodness with the suggestion of funk. Terrific aromas.
COS uses clay amphorae for storage and biodynamic viticulture to produce wines as naturally as possible. 60% Nero d’Avola, 40% Frappato di Vittoria. This is all about the terroir, it’s a glorious wine that truly speaks of a place and is driven by that. The acid is nice and vibrant and the tannins round. Plenty more fruit to be found on the palate with red and black fruits. More dusty earth, leather, and stones. A long finish that leaves you wanting more. And my friends, you do want more. — 7 days ago
Blend of 60% Cab Sauvignon, 35% Merlot & 5% Cab Franc, 33% new oak aged, owned by the same family as Cos Labory. Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe black fruits, spice and cedar. On the palate juicy blackberry and plum with notes of cacao and cedar. Fine tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit, cedar and earthy notes. Good value. — 14 days ago
Tastes like spring! Really enjoyed this bright, fruity, crisp, berry-oriented red. Low al of 10.5%. Buy again occasionally. — 2 months ago
Scarlet tawny with mostly clear rims. Barely translucent in the center. Impactful and exciting nose. Notes of black cherries, blueberries, cracked walnuts, cut Cuban cigar, some dry brush and a little camphor. Smooth in the mouth. The nose is so floral, which makes up for some fading fruit in the finish. I think this bottle was slightly past its peak given the drying fruit posture, but the nose and scents make up for it. — 17 days ago
Loved it. From COS liquor store. — a month ago
Bu side by side avec un Cos 96, sur une piece Tomahawk grillée à point. Une bouteille à point, ne t’en met pas trop pour seulement épater la galerie! C’est complexe, le bois est bien intégré, tabac, boite à cigare, une légère sucrosite, finale suave. Belle bouteille — a month ago
