Natalie's Score: 92/100

Peppery, spicy and racy with juicy dark red fruit. Full-bodied and smooth. Some blackberry and blackcurrant on the finish with a lick of dark spice. Here's a wine to tease the senses yet needs no coaxing to jump out of the glass. Perfect for movie night. Lots of pepper and dark spice on the finish.

Food pairings: grilled steak or chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This is a very well crafted Saint Joseph. Elegant, layered aromas of violet, ripe red berries, red currant, white pepper and spice feature on the nose. The fresh acidity is nicely balanced by the full body and concentrated red fruit flavours. Despite a certain firmness of structure, the texture is quite silky, finishing with ripe, finegrained tannins. The oak is quite subtle, adding more structure than aroma. The finish is long and nuanced.

Drinking well now, but will certainly improve with 3 - 5 years' cellaring and should hold well for another couple of years.
