2016 Les Pagodes de Cos  (St. Estèphe) 93

The family resembalance between its big brother is uncanny. The spicy, smoky earthy, pure fruits are present and accounted for. But they are softm silky and lighter, allowing you to enjoy this with a just a year or two of age. Though this beauty will be going strong for up to 2 decades.

Popped and poured was all this needed. Medium bodied, with finesse in the texture, this soft wine offered ripe, cassis flavors and a hint of cigar wrapper on the palate and nose. It is not a wine for laying down, but for a charming wine with early drinkability, this hit the spot.
