Inviting, with a core of warm raspberry, fig and blackberry compote flavors inlaid liberally with roasted apple wood and anise notes. Shows brambly grip through the finish.

Aged in second fill barrels, the 2015 Saint-Joseph is another huge success. Sourced from the southern end of this sprawling appellation, off granitic sites, it showcases aromas of crushed stones and discrete pencil shavings, which frame bright cherry notes. It’s medium to full-bodied, poised and fresh, with lingering tart berry flavors on a long, stony finish.
