2002 - Cos d'Estournel
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.

This wine drinks like a classic St. Estephe.  It begins lean and somewhat austere with substantial mineral notes. Its structure is apparent right out of the bottle, but the mid-palate is quite hollow.  After about an hour and a half of decanting, though, the fruit begins to come alive and flesh out the structure.  All of the things we like about Bordeaux varietals are there - cassis, red and black fruits, etc. - not in a big way, but well balanced.

Can't find a bad Cos, evenin '97

I realize that there are a of doubts about '97 Bordeaux. So far, I have had no problems (this is second or third wine of the vintage I have had). The bottle is a classic Cos in many ways. The tannins are present, but very well-balanced and in check. The wine has taste and some depth, but it is not fruity by any stretch of the imagination. We let this sit for about 90 minutes before we drank it over the course of a prime rib dinner. It opened up (or evolved because it was fine at first) over the course of the meal. I will let the next one sit for 3 hours or so just to see the difference. Very pleasant.

Good classic claret.  Interesting vintage for bordeaux but this wine delivers.  The nice cherry and light blackberry flavors roll over the palate carased in a velvet wrapper of tobacco and spice.  The fruit has somewhat faded on this wine but it still stands true.  Worth the taste!

There is a color to this wine that makes it a work of art. It's inky red and purple colors are complimented well by the aromas of spice box, Sweet fruit, Black currants, licorice,, toast and a hint of truffles'.

It is very textured with a medium body, nice balance and long finish.

EXCELLANT WINE!!!

This Bordeaux dances across the scenes like a skilled dancer. With a fragrance that had some much verity it would satisfy just about anyone. There is a thickness to this Bordeaux that is nice and full. This wine is structured well with a full body and a long finish it was satisfying and sweet.

Smells of smoke, licorice, cherries and cassis.

It's got body. Not much but hay it's there.

It is lacking the depth I was hopping for.

There is a dark red color to it.

Hot red and dark purple color. Very pretty. Short finish.

Aromas of sweet oak, licorice, fruits and some kind of herbs.

Not very much body but enough to notice it.
