Cos d'Estournel Bordeaux Blend 2002
Solid for the Vintage

This was a very wet year for bordeaux and most wines reflected that with lighter, watered down wines.  But this claret really steps it up in the face of adversity.  Leather, cassis, and wet stone dominate the palate of this very cool claret. Good Buy.

For the vintage this is an excellent Cos. Nose of leather, black fruit and licorice. A mouth coating palate of lush dark ripe fruit and almost polished tannins.  A very good St. Estephe wine and was among my fav of the '02 vintage along with the Pape Clement.

Popped and checked to see if decanting was needed. It was not needed. Dark purple color, fairly exctracted. Nose of new French oak, cassis, wet stone. Awesome nose, no hint of alcohol. In the mouth, smooth, low acidity, up front fruit, fine tannins. Great balance. Outstanding super second. Best Bordeaux to date for me.
