Bacari has such a great small plate menu that goes so well with Rhône’s.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, cherries, licorice, oak, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead, chocolates, light barnyard, smoke, spices, tobacco leaf and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, cherries, black plums, wood, licorice, vegetables, spices, smoke, earth, bell pepper, black tea and peppercorn.

Medium on the finish with fine-grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This Côtes du Rhône is always enjoyable. Good by itself or with food. Well balanced and fruity with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins.

Robert Parker 89 points.

I've had this wine before, on a few different vintages and occasions, and it is very consistent.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

87 Points.

$15.

Old leather and earth. Dried figs and plum. Baking spices. Clings to the palate well.

100% Syrah partially destemmed. Loaded with juicy blackberries and smoked meat character, showing a bit chunky and extracted right now. This line of Saint Cosme cuvees see some very extended macerations and I believe need some time to shed the girth and display real complexity. That said, this is an exceptional value from a vintage to watch.

Kalamata, leather, game, and ink - a CdR made entirely of Syrah, and it shows. Structured, with lovely blue overtones
