A sensational wine that's up with the creme de la creme of the appellation, the inky colored 2010 St Joseph Ste Epine was raised in 40-50% new French oak, with the balance in 2- and 3-year-old barrels. It has serious minerality in its graphite, chocolate, blackberry, currants and smoked herb aromas and flavors, and frankly, tastes more like an Hermitage than a St Joseph. Full-bodied, concentrated and rich, with big tannin and a great finish, it needs to be forgotten for 3-4 years but will cruise for 20 years or more. - Jeb Dunnuck

Mineral-accented black raspberry and cherry on the hugely aromatic nose. Sweet penetrating red and dark berry preserve flavors show excellent depth and energy with a late note of candied licorice adding a darker tone. The finish features excellent focus and cut and resonating sweetness.

Well-fruited, with plum, raspberry and red currant notes melded together. The sleek, polished structure holds everything together. A lovely iron note slides through the finish. Drink now through 2022. – JM

Heady aromas and flavors of candied dark berries, violet pastille and cola, with a spicy note gaining strength in the glass. Fleshy and expansive, with superb finishing clarity and subtle, fully integrated tannins. Approachable now but there's plenty of depth here to warrant cellaring.
