Very round and fresh with delicious crushed fig plum sauce and graphite flavors laced with spice and sweet earth notes. The long incense- and toast-filled finish has lovely texture.

The long incense- and toast-filled finish has lovely texture. Mocha and fruitcake hints at the end should flesh out nicely with cellaring. Best after 2010. -JM

More classic in style, with a masculine, meaty profile of smoked Syrah fruit, truffle, chocolate, spice and licorice, the 2006 Saint Joseph Vignes des Hospice is full-bodied, rounded and concentrated on the palate, with significant underlying structure. I love the purity here, and it is well worth seeking out. - Jeb Dunnuck

Vivid ruby. Exotic aromas of raspberry and blackcurrant preserves, incense, smoked meat and violet, plus a hint of black olive. Very syrah, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and an exotically spicy floral pastille... Vivid ruby. Exotic aromas of raspberry and blackcurrant preserves, incense, smoked meat and violet, plus a hint of black olive. Very syrah, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and an exotically spicy floral pastille quality. Bracing minerality adds lift and cut to the finish, which echoes the sweet red fruit and floral notes. There's lots going on here right now and this could easily be enjoyed with a couple hours of aeration. -- Josh Raynolds
