Château de Saint-Cosme

Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2016

Deep purple hue. Medium-plus tearing. Smoked meat, black cassis, ripe plum, candied blackberries, molasses, bay leaf, wet stone, potting soil, and baking spices on the nose. On the palate, strong acidity, spice, and tannins open up to juicy black fruit, dark chocolate, and espresso notes. Lovely southern Rhône, Grenache-based blend with strong complexity. Long finish. 15% ABV. Vintage 2016. #chateaudesaintcosme #gigondas #southernrhonewines #encoresilvousplaît — 5 days ago

Sunny Sunday lunch with panzanella salad. Absolutely perfect. Didn’t notice the alcohol but refreshing acidity and restrained fruit worked for me! — 15 days ago

Le Fiacre du Pape Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2017

This is a young Grenache blend from the South of France.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, cherries, currants, earth, wood, spices, light vanilla, vegetables, tobacco, black coffee, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

Easy drinking and gentle. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up.

Would benefit from another 5 to 10 years of bottle time.

Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel and mild complexity.

A blend of 60% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre, 15% Cinsault and 10% Syrah.

14% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$25.

Domaine de la Mordorée

La Dame Rousse Lirac Red Rhone Blend 2018

I got suckered into this delicious and relatively expensive rose by a particularly enterprising sommelier. One who, not shockingly, also talked me into several other bottles just beyond my max price range. In any event, this is deliciously complex. He told me it is funky, but it is only funky the way your 80-year-old grandma dancing the tootsie roll to Earth, Wind, and Fire is funky. Instead, this is delightfully complex and creamy, with a finish of black pepper and faint peppermint. — 14 days ago

Wednesday Wine Committee. Great hosting by Gavin. 1 sparkler, 4 whites, 4 reds and 2 dessert wines. All served blind as usual.

This wine was crazy. Aromatically, it smelled of fresh tar and concentrated pear juice (like from a can). Kind of lychee like, but not enough to be gewürztraminer. Medium acidity. Slightly rich toward the finish. This ended up being 60% clariette, 20% Grenache Blanc, and the rest a mix. Hard to guess blind. I called this Alsatian Pinot Gris.
