Starting the week off right with the second bottle from Chateau Cos d'Estournel the 2009 Les Pagodes de Cos. This is a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot.
On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, cassis, green bell pepper, chocolate, violets, cedar, spice, and earth.
On the palate I am able to get notes of black cherry, blackberry, black plum, cassis, green bell pepper, asian spice, tobacco and earth.
This a beautiful full bodied smooth fresh mouthfeel with medium + to high acidity and medium + to high mouth coating grippy sweet tannins that lead into a long dark fruit spicy earth finish. What a great way to start the week. This second bottle would be a classic first anytime. Have a great week ahead and pleas stay healthy and safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 7 days ago

Celebrating Mother’s Day and our son’s 18th b-day with a 2003 Cos. A beautiful crimson red with definite bricking. A very fragrant nose filling the senses with a perfume raspberry dark plumb, stewed meat , and cedar, pine-menthol and lingering notes of a vanilla forest floor. Creamy and rich in flavor; a juicy layered fresh feel on the palate. Flavors of dark raspberry-cherry mint spice, pencil lead tobacco with a smokey earthy chocolate-coffee long finish, yum, yum!! A great wine to celebrate today m honor of our son! — a day ago
