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.

Aurelian pinheiro st Joseph 2017.

Pretty closed. I’d wait. Or decant at least 45 minutes.

Nose pencil shavings. Some blueberry flower. Super closed mostly

Palate is yummy blueberry juice. Good juiciness. Blueberry licorice in the finish.

Will follow as it opens.

Ok 45 minutes in this is getting interesting. Some spice is rounding this out. Blueberry flower internal aromatics. Getting yummalicious. Has good density. Nice palate cling.

Bought from fass selections.
