Tasting Note:

A lovely, even-keeled mix of lush, ripe dark fruits mixed with a little nerve and sinew. Flowing with ripe fruit notes of cassis and bramble, a touch of violet, with a crisp, tannic edge providing support. A spicy salt and pepper character on the finish adds freshness and complexity. Nourishing, velvety, spicy and with a floral edge, this is one seductive and well-balanced St Joseph. A blend of 10 St Joseph parcels vinified separately.

Aged for 14 months in barriques and larger demi-muids barrels with very little new wood.
