Château St. Cosme is one of the top producers of Cotes du Rhone. Little James' Basket Press is a blend of grenache from new and old vines. Aromas and flavors of Provencal herbs, pepper, cherry, and hint of apricots emerge from this medium bodied wine.
It proves that creative thinking, good sourcing, and minimal intervention in winemaking can result in fantastic value. This is a fruit-forward wine but with plenty of structure and old-world earthiness, made in a rustic style.
