Still has some tannins, but maybe better to aerate then aging substantially longer. Very complete St Jospeh with a long finish.

Dark fruit. Hints of licorice. Not very mineral or acidic not a fruit bomb but fruity wine.

Nose is very tarry with dark berry fruit. Nice granitic stank as well. Very. A bit floral as well. Palate is juicy and complex. Really a ton of fruit but also a ton of mineral and rocks on the finish. Juicy and lithe a vast improvement over last time. Nice finish.

Floral, gamey nose. Some spice and incense. Big, plump and uncomplicated on the palate with big juicy fruit and slight prickly heat. Good not great.

Big tannins and ripe: awesome. Juicy and super structure. Fantastic.

Big dark fruit nose with some vanilla. Deep reddish purple color. Dark fruits to taste with an earthy smoky middle. Delicious. However, quickly loses all the character in the glass and gets tight. My learned friend says it would probably open up again after an hour or 2 but we went for the drink quicker and pour more option.

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.
