Critical Acclaim

"This has lovely notes of apple wood, incense and espresso up front, followed by a solid core of crushed plum and steeped blackberry fruit. A smoldering tobacco edge hangs on the lightly firm finish. Best from 2013 through 2018."
91 Points

"Dark ruby. Musky aromas of cassis, blackberry, minerals, dark chocolate, smoke and cracked pepper. Broad and seamless in texture, with dark fruit and mineral flavors complicated by a subtle floral nuance. A suave, open-knit wine that finishes with very good verve and soft, harmonious tannins."
91 Points

"The dense purple-colored 2009 St.-Joseph was scheduled to be bottled soon after my visit. It reveals lots of crushed rock, black raspberry, licorice and floral notes in its medium to full-bodied, attractive personality. It should offer plenty of charm over the next 7-8 years."
