Nose is graphite.
Palate - silky texture. Graphite blended with blackberry.
Let’s see how this develops.
As this opens it’s definitely a graphite blackberry melange kind of thing. Good grip. Quite focused. Cerebral in a sense. Like this silky almost lilac extract on the palate.
If I had this blind I’d guess st jo on the nose and cote rotie on the palate.

2021/3. Red and blue fruit, but also powdery and compacted - even a relatively “straightforward” St. Joseph like this probably needs more time to come together — 2 days ago
In a great place. This shows the glory of 2015. Smokey meats, olive and granite on the nose. Palate is complex right now and so pure, energetic and fresh. Terrific integration of fruit, tannins, granite, acid. Just so long as well. Black fruits bursting in your mouth slathered in granite. Wow this is long. Really long. Yup. A 9.4. — 21 days ago
Cherry, clay and earthy on the nose, BlackBerry notes, clean finish. — 7 days ago
Bright magenta color. Bramble berry pie, smoked game, and peppercorn. Suave with a masculine feel. Ample tannin supports blue and black fruits. Super solid. — 8 days ago
