A dynamic St-Joseph from Louis Barruol, this wine is powered by the mouthwatering pucker of sour cherries and pomegranate and a deep growl of tannins. Light and dark, lush and strict, the components keep the wine in a constant, enticing state of tension, notes of underbrush, spice and herbs adding detail. Made from sérine, an old variant of syrah, with 30 percent whole clusters, this is a serious St-Joseph, to drink now or hold another decade.

Shows a bright savory note, along with pepper and green olive hints amid the core of gently steeped raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors. Keeps an herbaceous edge through the finish, along with lightly chalky tannins. A touch old-school and built on acidity. Put this in the cellar. Best from 2019 through 2030. 950 cases made.

Impressive spicy red and black berry fruits, with smoky and gently meaty nuances, too.This has a fluid, smoothly rendered palate that is saturated in flavor. Drink now.
