Gorgeous mountain stream water, fresh wild flowers, hay. Delicate yet very elegant palate with lovely opulence and purity. So clean. So damn clean. Mineral finish with honey and tangerine. Complex and so dense but my goodness is it elegant. Beautiful lingering honey on the finish with mineral and perfectly mineral citrus. Wow. Gorgeous. — 11 days ago

Love this St. Joseph. Such a different more “Côte-Rotie” style than the classic Mauves, Tournon, Epine styles. Super floral. Violets and more violets. Gorgeous precise and high toned aromas of mineral and lavender as well. Gorgeous red fruits and a lovely smokey, meaty and gamey element. Palate is structured and refined, and a bit tight out of the bottle but does blossom after an hour, but ideally I’d sit on this. Precise and linear, gamey, with huge granitic minerality and wonderfully pure. Give this 3-5 more years. But gorgeous wine if a bit young. — 17 days ago

Nose is lean and elegant. Very pure fruit. Still young. If you only have one Wait 5 years. Needs some air .... 30 minutes in starting to get some licorice. ... some tobacco. Fruit is clear and elegant. Wine is unknit at this point. You can feel the complexity at the edges of your palate but it’s just resisting. — a month ago
Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.
Nose has cedar box, ripe black cherry, wet soil, prune and decaying leaves.
Palate has dried cherry, dried blackberry, ripe cherry, wet leather with some grip of tannins lingering.
Just a delightful village-level bottle from a storied production team. — 17 days ago
Inky ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented cherry liqueur, blueberry and violet scents are complicated by hints of olive paste and cured meat. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering intense black and blue fruit, bitter chocolate and licorice flavors and a spicy touch of cracked pepper. The meaty quality comes back on the finish, which shows solid thrust, strong persistence and well-knit tannins. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, September 2019) — a month ago
