Little James Basket Press
Summer makes me remiss in posting, often getting in the way of routine. A good thing, generally. This is a no-vintage red blend from the Rhone Valley producer St. Cosme. I am fully intrigued by the small batch of forward thinking french producers who still yet remain true to terroir. This is just such a wine, with clever marketing, a good price, and quality to back it up.
Light fruit and spices punctuate this pleasant table wine. Very food friendly, especially with poultry or heavy fish like arctic char (what I consumed it with). Overall very much worth the money.
