An exotic and flashy red with bold espresso melted licorice incense and black tea aromatics rushing forth backed by dense but focused noted of blackberry and plum pâte de fruit. The long graphite-filled finish drips with fruit and singed wood notes and should meld nicely in the cellar. Best from 2013 through 2023. -JM

Checking in at 13.7% natural alcohol (it’s normally in the 13.5 rage), the blockbuster 2009 Saint Joseph Vignes des Hospice is more open, broad and expansive on the palate than the ’10, yet possesses a similar level of... Checking in at 13.7% natural alcohol (it’s normally in the 13.5 rage), the blockbuster 2009 Saint Joseph Vignes des Hospice is more open, broad and expansive on the palate than the ’10, yet possesses a similar level of concentration and structure.

An explosively perfumed bouquet presents ripe blackberry, cassis, cherry compote, star anise and cola. A massive, densely packed wine that shows impressive depth as well as energy to its black and blue fruit flavors, which expand with air. Very long and pure on the mineral-tinged finish, displaying notes of dark berry liqueur and fruity black pepper. -- Josh Raynolds
