K&L Notes

The vineyards used for Offerus are located in two distinct St. Joseph areas. The communities of Mauves, Tournon, and St. Jean de Muzols yield over 80% of the blend and are owned by Jean-Louis. These southern vineyard sites express tightly wound tannins, spice, and power. They add structure and depth to complete the harmony of Offerus. The remaining vineyards are located in more northerly communities around Serrières, and even these are farmed mainly by Jean-Louis, though he doesn’t own the vineyards. This soil produces wines which are more elegant with incredible purity, definition, and focus. This cépage, composed of 100% Syrah, is a gorgeous panoply of baking spices and lavender tones. The brambly black fruit and roasted fig notes provide plenty of open fruit, and the light burnished leather quality adds to the complexity. The 2014 vintage is pretty versatile overall, providing immediate drinkability alongside plenty of structure for some short-term aging. If you open this bottle now, give it an hour or so in a decanter. Then make sure to offer the “Offerus” to your friends with a roasted leg of lamb dusted in Moroccan spices.
