Fresh dark berry and cherry-cola aromas and flavors are complicated by notes of Asian spices and licorice. Bright and racy on entry, then fleshier and richer in the mid-palate, with a smoky note emerging with aeration. Silky, harmonious tannins frame the long, sweet, incisive finish. Quite elegant, even polished, with plenty of surprisingly immediate appeal. - Josh Raynolds

It is a wine of extraordinary intensity and superb concentration but it is so tannic and backward that it needs to be forgotten for a decade. Even though it is in bottle it has not evolved much since I tasted it from barrel last year. -Robert Parker

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, October 2013
This captures the slightly taut, sinewy feel of the appellation, with a chalky spine driving the core of currant paste, tapenade and tobacco leaf flavors. The chalky edge takes over on the finish. Solid. Best from 2014... This captures the slightly taut, sinewy feel of the appellation, with a chalky spine driving the core of currant paste, tapenade and tobacco leaf flavors.

The oak influence has been trimmed back at Jaboulet in recent vintages, and this wine shows only traces of menthol and cedar. Cracked peppercorns and red cherries form the core aromas and flavors of this medium-bodied but long and mouthwatering wine. Approachable now, but it should age well for at least 10 years.

Paul Jaboulet Aine

For almost two centuries, the Jaboulet family has shared a common passion for the Rhone Valley, its history, its terroir, its exceptional people and wines.

In 1834, Antoine Jaboulet started working the land on the hills of Hermitage. Through his hard work and passion, he was able to produce a wine of exceptional quality. The business was passed on to his sons Henri and Paul, with the latter later giving his name to the company.

Since then, the generations have continued to succeed one another until in January 2006, the Frey family, longstanding winemakers in Champagne and owners of Chateau La Lagune in Bordeaux, acquired Maison Paul Jaboulet Aine thus adding to its portfolio of prestigious names.

The company’s hundred or so hectares of vineyards are tended with the greatest possible care. The wide diversity of terroirs and the influence of micro-climates favor the production of Syrah, the principal variety and the sole red grape, while Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier are used for the white wines.

Jaboulet wines represent generations of hard work and a passion for excellence and these values are adhered to by an unswerving commitment to improving vineyards, and through strategic acquisitions and work in the cellars, while respecting the environment at the same time.
