Gerard Bertrand Kosmos Red Blend 2014
Ample sweet spice and cigar box elements weave through the blackberry pie and kirsch flavors in this brooding, full-bodied red, with dense, supple tannins marking the iron and bay leaf finish. Drink now through 2020. 25,000 cases made.
This organic wine, produced with a natural and biodynamic approach, is an interesting blend of 30% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Malbec and 10% Marselan. It offers pronounced earthy characteristics, as well as a citrusy kick (like tangerine oil) to the blueberry and blackberry fruit core. The mouthfeel is creamy and velvety, with plush tannins and lingering baking-spice flavors.
