"One of the candidates for wine of the vintage..."Wine Advocate "Gorgeous aromas of currants and berries with hints of licorice. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a pretty finish. Silky. This is extremely good for the vintage. The team of Cos worked hard on their 2002 and it shows."-Wine Spectator In the old Gascon language, the word ‘Cos’ means ‘The Hill of Pebbles’.

International Wine CellarGood red-ruby. Deep, aromatic, highly complex nose combines raspberry, espresso, tree bark, leather, graphite, cedar, coconut and exotic woodsmoke.
