The very best wines of Saint Joseph are easily on par with great Hermitage and Côte Rôtie, and are far less expensive. This 2016 is just such a wine; a deep, complex Syrah drawing admiring glances from all of the world’s elite criticsVineyards are located in the southern, limestone-rich part of Saint Joseph, making for Syrah of greater structure and finesse than is typical for the appellation 2016 was a fantastic year in the Northern Rhône, making wines that are “not to be missed” as Decanter puts itAged with 30% new oak to add spicy complexity without overwhelming the fruit, this red has earned 94 points from Wine Advocate an 17.5/20 from which called it “luxurious … rich but with fine structure”. An indulgent bouquet of ripe black fruit and dark chocolate alongside blueberry, black olive and hot rock. Concentrated red and black berries on the palate are balanced by grippy, supple tannins. One for drinking or keeping.
