A bit of cedar sticks out on the nose of the 2015 Saint Joseph la Sensonne, so give this a couple of years in the cellar to further integrate its 100% new oak treatment. This full-bodied, richly concentrated wine has the mixed berry and cherry fruit to handle it and the tannic structure to age a decade or more. (JC)
Dark purple. Heady scents of blackberry liqueur, cherry compote and licorice are enlivened by smoky mineral and floral notes. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering sweet, impressively concentrated dark berry, violet pastille and spicecake flavors and a touch of vanillin oak spice. Aeration reveals more vivacity on the strikingly persistent, incisive finish, which is firmed by juicy acidity and youthfully chewy tannins. (JR)
