    Winemaker's Notes:

    The color is a deep, dark ruby red with garnet wick gourmet reflection. The nose is clearly marked by delicate aromas of cassis and spices. On the palate, "François de Tournon" shows a tender, voluptuous texture that masks a good tannic structure, fine and silky. Will age well.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This has a nice chalky spine holding the black cherry, violet, red licorice and garrigue notes together, while the finish is taut and filled with iron. Drink now through 2012. 1,665 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2005 St.-Joseph Francois de Tournon is a restrained, but promising wine displaying its terroir of pure granite soils in its stony personality, crisp acidity, and black/purple fruit. Although somewhat austere, it is concentrated, medium to full-bodied, and promising. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following decade.
