Moving to the current releases from bottle and starting with the classic 2015 Saint Joseph, this beauty is ripe and polished, and shows the sweet tannin and charm of the vintage. Blackcurrants, black raspberries, spice and hints of graphite all flow to a medium to full-bodied, polished, incredibly elegant red that's already hard to resist, yet should keep for 7-8 years.
(raised in barriques that range from three to six years of age) Bright purple. Intense berry and lavender aromas are sharpened by a smoky mineral quality and a hint of white pepper. Seamless, focused and gently sweet on the palate, offering intense dark fruit liqueur and floral pastille flavors that become spicier on the back half. Finishes smooth and very long, with an echo of candied flowers and supple tannins adding shape. (JR)
Ripe and mouthfilling, with a good brambly edge juxtaposed against sleeker cassis and crushed plum fruit flavors that race through. Shows a graphite underpinning on the finish. Drink now through 2022. (JM)
