Saint-Joseph Syrah 2018

Black raspberry, creme de cassis, creme de violet, hot iron, ink, dried beef, woodsmoke, laurel, pine forest, ash, pastille, blood, granite. Thick, dense with tannins that show the heat of the growing season. Remarkably balanced and even keeled given the warmth, not losing the savory and meaty nature Gonon always carries. The granite is biting and persistent throughout the palate, balancing all that chewy fruit. โ€” 12 days ago

St. Helena Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Ming L

Ripe, luscious yet still crisp enough. Nice mix of stone, citrus, and tropical fruits on the nose with hint of honeydew. Flavor of ginger spice and light herbs make the otherwise richly textured palate lively.

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2017

For an old world Syrah, this is showing significant fruit: cranberry, black currant, and blackberry. Background aromas, however, shine through with smoked minerals, black pepper, leather, and vanilla.
I love the juicy, lengthy, peppery finish on this wine.

Vieilles Vignes St. Joseph Syrah 2019

Lyle Fass

Young and killer. The best value in St. Joseph. It cannot be debated. Nose is gorgeous with roasted herbs de Provence, black berry, huge mineral core, so layered and elegant. Amazing finesse. Flowers. Just an outrageous nose. Massive, backwards and so juicy. Awesome power, depth and concentration. Huge fruit soak on the finish. So fresh and granitic on the finish and what a finish it is! Just a sick wine. Give it 5 years. Best since 17 and 15. โ€” 7 days ago

Just stunning. Blackberry, violets, so so floral, earthy, mineral, saddle leather, meaty, so so good. Concentrated, inner mouth florals, grippy still but also starting to get to secondary. Long. Long. Stunning depth to the fruit on the backend. Amazing. Velvety tannins. Grippening up. So long and complex. Wonderful finesse. So good โ€” 5 days ago

Napa Valley Syrah 2001


To celebrate 6,500 reviews on Vivino, I chose this nicely aged Syrah.

Dark ruby in color with a brick rim.

Beautiful nose of blueberries, blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, raisins, vanilla, cedar, licorice, metals, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, vinaigrette and pencil lead.

Full bodied, elegant and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with plums, cherries, blueberries, wood, cloves, vanilla, spices, espresso, dark chocolates, peppercorn, pencil lead and earth.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is wonderful Syrah from Napa Valley. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing great complexity and mouthfeel.

This 20 year old needs 45 minutes to open up properly, and remove the barnyard smell.

I've had this vintage a few years ago, and this is my last bottle. I'm glad it was such an enjoyable wine.

This is gorgeous and delicious. Rich, yet subdued. Elegant and smooth.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a BBQ burger.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

95 points.
