"The 2003 St.-Joseph is a new offering from this estate. I thought I was walking into a Tangier casbah when I got a whiff of this wine's wild aromatics. Funky spices (pepper, allspice, and a hint of hash) jump from the glass of this dense ruby/purple-colored St.-Joseph. With airing, notes of licorice and sweet black currants also came forward. This full-bodied, powerful, impressive red is no doubt a reasonable buy."
