Clos de Cuminaille Saint-Joseph Syrah 2017

Last night of vacation in Spain and France. 13th bottle and I only have a 12-bottle shipper, so pulled the cork. Nice , relatively soft Syrah and pretty well ready to go on pop and pour. Purchased at the winery. — 8 days ago

Incredible power, depth, tension, length, and balance. True Syrah which is texturally so interesting. A very exciting wine that will only get better. — 2 days ago

Domaine du Tunnel (Stéphane Robert)

St. Joseph Syrah 2016

A nice wine but not sure the quality to price ratio is quite there. Plenty of dark fruit and earth, but not as high toned as I like from St Joseph. Slightly thin, on the finish, even. Still nice but for the price was expecting more. Possible this is just too young and was tight and not giving much. — 9 days ago

Domaine Blachon

Cuvée Hommage Roger Blachon Saint-Joseph Syrah 2015

Dark ruby color and high saturation. Strong aromas of savory, leather, sage, lavender, with hints of blackberry and vanilla. Very complex and balanced on palate: bold, full-bodied, highly tannic, long finish, and full of character. — 8 days ago

Could have used a decant to start, but opened up nicely over the course of a three hour dinner at Assemblage. Beautiful. — 12 days ago

Vieilles Vignes St. Joseph Marsanne Roussanne Blend 2014

Lyle Fass

Been a minute since I’ve had the 2014. Nose is yellow fruited with intense Marsanne minerality. Some flowers and spice as well. Palate is super precise and elegant with lovely density and wonderful purity. Intense minerality and terrific mouthfeel. Almost like icing on a cake. — 5 days ago

Couronne de Chabot Saint-Joseph Marsanne 2017

Alluring yellow fruit and citrus aromas with some minerality that opens to well-balanced and juicy flavors on the tongue. A bit of a bite on the finish. Best served chilled. — 5 days ago

André Perret

Les Grisières St. Joseph Syrah 2016

Ruby-red and highly saturated. Strong aromas of blackberry, vanilla, cream, leather, caramel, herbs, and barrel spice. Fruit-forward, full-bodied, and highly tannic, but medium-long smooth finish. — 8 days ago
