A blockbuster effort that performed significantly better than it did last year when it was exhibiting some reduction is the 2010 St.-Joseph Francois de Tournon. This wine which was so tight and difficult to evaluate last year is brilliant. A dense purple color is followed by notes of graphite pen ink blackberries and blueberries and hints of raspberries smoke and subtle oak. This full-bodied classic monumental St.-Joseph was aged completely in small barrels. The good news is that 1500 cases are just hitting the market. My instincts suggest 1-2 years of bottle age will be beneficial and it is capable of lasting 15 or more years. Don't miss it!

Wild highly perfumed aromas of candied dark fruits incense and violet with a vibrant overlay of peppery spices. Juicy palate-staining cassis and blueberry flavors show excellent clarity with a bright mineral note providing lift. Finishes on an intense floral note with lingering mineral and spice nuances.
