This wine is deep ruby with developing and robust notes of blackberry preserves, crushed blueberry, dried prune, fig paste, violet, cherry blossom, black licorice, anise, cedar, nutmeg, cardamom, allspice, pencil shavings, leather, tobacco, and forest floor.
On the palate this wine is dry. It has medium acidity, a full body, high alcohol, smooth, fine-grain tannins, and medium(+) intensity in flavors consistent with the nose. It’s bold, structured, perfumed…
With a long, elegant finish and impeccable balance, this wine is top-notch-delish! C’est magnifique!

Off the charts good, textbook classic Syrah made in a clean and almost too perfect way. Where are the faults? Kidding aside this is about as good as anything I have had from St. Jo from Gonon or anyone else. All the classic notes of black pepper, roasted meats, bacon fat, olive, the hole package...the nose is very pronounced and the palate has freshness to the generosity, a super long finish and a very fun and enjoyable bottle! — 6 days ago
some residual sugar with juicy fruits. Complexity such as tea leaf, hot spicies.
