This is having a great moment. Smoke, olives, dark berry fruit, blueberry. Huge granite and deep mineral tones. Juicy, so fresh, deep and concentrated with outrageous purity and a long finish. Loads of medium to dark berry fruit and really really long finish and also serious structure. What a showing. This has got 15+ years ahead of it but is fun today. These wines will last a long time.

@Lyle Fass this is pitch perfect St. Joseph: immediacy and depth at the same time. Earlier vintages were good, but not as good as Marc Sorrel wines. Now, it seems like the son has caught up with the father!

Elegant and lithe. Black raspberry, black cherry, rocks, touch of white pepper. Very pleasant.

Rocking nose, red berries, game, smoked meat, olive, so so so St. Jo. Loads of granite and florals. Smells great. Gorgeous combo of florals and minerality. Palate is pure and lush. But structured, sappy and deep. Terrific grip. This is particularly showing well. Really refined and deep. Elegant and structured and it will age. Sappy clinging blackberry and black cherry fruit. Better in 3 years but approachable today if you like some grip.

Big, ripe nose with tons of mineral. Really refined. Also a bit closed aromatically. Palate is glorious. So elegant yet deep and concentrated with amazing granite minerality. Huge concentration. Tiny berry fruit intensity. So pure and so deep. Amazing detail. Suave tannins. Nose opens up after a bit with deep mineral and wet earth. Stunning wine.

Lovely red fruit, Italian herb finish. Delish with chicken cacciatore. Ty Fass Selections.
