at a #steakhouse looking for a (rare) deal? 💵 hit "St. Joseph," which is a medium- to full-framed, plum-violet, mineral-laced stand-in for the more expensive and complex wines of northern Rhône, such as Hermitage and Côte Rôtie - this killer St Cosme 🍷 was plummy, savory, graphite-y and smooth with Benjamin Steak's perfectly grilled boeuf

Blood orange peel, blueberry and kalamata. Excellent varietal character and length.

Beautiful wine. Not overly complex but one hell of a Syrah from an always producer who continues to over deliver

Meat, oak and char. A little reductive. Grippy with lots of fruit and roasted coffee. Rich acid gives a forward thrust. Good finish. In the beginning of its life. #syrah #tinyhousetastinggroup

This wine might of been slightly corked. Didn't show much fruit, but all the textural elements were there, along with the St. Joseph pepper element. A flawless bottle of this would likely been one of the front runners.

Graceful, elegant, and a little elusive. White flowers, ham, crushed rock, tobacco leaf, blueberry, eucalyptus. Soft mouth feel and fine integrated tannins. Plush acidity.
