(1999 Vintage) St. Cosme's (pronounced "comb") Gigondas displays superb balance between fruit and frame-between its ripe, spicy grapeyness and tannin structure. The blend consists roughly of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Cinsaut. The Grenache gives fat, fleshy fruit; Syrah gives dark color, grip, spice and black fruit; while Cinsaut gives perfume. This excellent, well-constituted wine will warm your bones.
