I think we sold this for under $23. What St. Joseph used to cost when I was coming up. Smoke, blueberry, blackberry, granite, spice and earth. Lovely nose. So so classic. Palate is juicy and super mineral. Lovely freshness and some slate like tannins. Good fruit soak and lovely hint of rusticity. Mineral. Really a mineral wine. I love this style. Good structure as well. Will improve for 5-6 years. Will update as it airs. Keeps changing. — 5 days ago

To overestimate the joy of the red fruit here would be sadly misplaced. So pure, so intense. Cloudy red, pure bramble nose. Jenny & Francois importer — 9 days ago

Opened way too early. Super tight with the tannins and acidity overpowering they fruit a bit. It took a while for some of the smoky and spice flavors to unfurl. Bold black fruit core. Will have to revisit in a couple of year to let things settle down. — 6 days ago

Tasting great now. Funky nose with undercurrents of dark fruit and spice. Palate is great with a game-like quality, dark cherries, a hint of jam, good acid, very savory. Makes me want to grill some sausage! — 12 days ago

Young but will so great from this new rare Gripa St. Joseph Cuvee. More finesse driven than the Berceau and sits between that and the regular St. Joseph. Gorgeous nose of smoked meat, mint, hint of oak, big red berry fruit, floral and superb granite. What one wants. I love it. As it aerates a perfume develops. Palate is deep, structured, fresh and ripe. So clean. Juicy and substantial tannins but elegant as well. Long finish with superb clarity and sap. Really well made and also young. But just a terrific debut. — 15 days ago

Blackberry, candied Cherry and black pepper. Delicious wine that is in perfect balance at the moment but soon on the downside. Had with braised rabbit and was perfect. Fun to drink and consistent over two hours of aeration. — 6 days ago
