Expressive dark berry preserve, baking spice, potpourri and smoky mineral aromas display good clarity and take on an olive nuance with air. Sappy, concentrated blackberry, bitter cherry and olive paste flavors show very good focus, and a hint of candied violet emerges on the back half. Sweet and chewy in texture, finishing with energetic cut, spice-driven persistence and building tannins that add firming grip.Deep vivid ruby.

The stems are barely noticeable here, meshing beautifully with cherry fruit and helping to refine the silky tannins. Medium to full-bodied, this offers complex notes of tea, olive and espresso on the long finish. - Joe Czerwinski collapse

The classic 2016 Saint Joseph from Graillot is an incredible pepper and violet-scented beauty that offers more red and black fruit, bacon fat, and leafy herb notes with time in the glass. Nicely concentrated... expand The classic 2016 Saint Joseph from Graillot is an incredible pepper and violet-scented beauty that offers more red and black fruit, bacon fat, and leafy herb notes with time in the glass. Nicely concentrated, medium-bodied, silky, and perfectly balanced, this old school beauty shines on all accounts. Drink it any time over the coming 10-15 years. collapse
