Densely packed, delivering layers of roasted fig, crushed blackberry and macerated plum fruit, all stitched together with singed apple wood and cocoa powder notes. The finish hints at a tangy iron edge, but is cloaked in fruit and toast for now. Terrific cut and length. Best from 2014 through 2024. (JM)
More sweetly fruited (not unlike the 2011), the 2009 Saint Joseph Les Granits literally bursts from the glass with ripe black raspberry, kirsch, toasted bread, spice and floral-like aromas and flavors. Ripe, beautifully concentrated, up-front, layered and downright sexy, I’d enjoy it over the coming decade, but it will evolve for longer. (JD)
Full ruby. Dark berries and cherry compote on the pungent, smoke-accented nose. Rich, palate-coating blackberry and boysenberry flavors show very good depth and become spicier with air. Picks up an exotic floral pastille note on the long, penetrating finish. This wine is slow to unfold and really demands some patience. (JR)
