The wine of the lineup (the 2010 may surpass it in a few years), the 2006 Saint Joseph Les Granits is a blockbuster. Coming from a dry, hot vintage (and a very strong vintage in general for this estate), it has awesome depth and concentration to go with classic Northern Rhone meatiness, minerality, dried spices and dark fruit on the nose. Filling the mouth with fruit, it’s perfectly balanced, has sweet tannin and a finish that won’t quit. Given this showing, I wouldn’t hesitate to start cracking bottles, but it has at least another decade of prime drinking. - Jeb Dunnuck

Bittersweet cocoa and Black Forest cake notes stretch out on the finish. Offers very solid depth for the vintage. Drink now through 2011. 755 cases made. -JM

Sexy red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by dusty minerals and fresh rose. Impressively pure red fruit flavors display excellent sweetness but also strong minerality finishing with excellent cut and cling. Here's another 2006 that will be delicious young.
