Took a flyer on a mixed 3-pack and so far so good with bottle #1. Super delicate, wispy and soft, quite vinous. Apple, white raisin, ginger on the palate with a super delicate mousse and medium acidity. What it lacks in energy it makes up for in elegance. Pretty wine. Great value for what I paid. — 2 years ago
This is a 100 % organic Syrah grown on decomposed granite hillsides in Saint Joseph, displaying violet, ripe black fruits with hint of dried blueberry, black pepper and vanilla. Slightly musky, dusty, med plus body with great acidity and med plus tannin. A wonderful Saint Joseph has depth, structure, and fruitiness. — 3 years ago

Wow nose. So funky. Smoke, spice, huge mineral. Lemon, so complex. Pitter patter of complexity. Juicy and so elegant. Very pure and even a bit young. Awesome texture and has that 08 lifting acid. Finishes so so beautiful and with intense long minerality. Terrific. — 3 years ago
2007 Lime, lime pith and lemon peel hold strong despite age. Lemon madeleines, orange oil, tangerine pith, lemongrass, evergreen. Orange peel, lemon oil and lemongrass forefront, while lime neutralizes to background color green olive swims in the lime, chamomile, kefir lime, grape leaf, crystalline salinity. Bright and ripe after 15 years!

Very regal, polished and complete. Rich and intense in the midpalate without and striking veins of acidity. Harmonious and rounded (Malo?) with lime, limestone, light hints of honey. Very deep, balanced and correct, but a touch dull alongside the crazy intensity of sauzet. — 3 years ago
