Lovely, dense, dark. Pure joy to drink and makes me re-promise myself that I will age these wines longer.

A gorgeous example of iconic St. Joseph. Ask me what syrah should taste like and this might be the first bottle I reach for.

I would have rated it higher if it was 10 years older! Delicious.

Fire. Camp smoke, smoldering embers. Crushed peppercorn and black fruit. Delicious and crunchy.
