    Winemaker's Notes:

    The St. Joseph Rouge 2007 is dark red with violet tints. It has a powerful nose dominated by red berries and delicate oak aromas. On the palate, this wine has a powerful attack with round and supple tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This powerful, tannic, take-no-prisoners style of St-Joseph, earthy and animal. An estate wine, it came off vines 20 to 75 years old, planted on the steep slopes of the hill that lent the appellation its name. Even after two days open, it had barely begun to unwind, the black plum, licorice and spice notes cinched tight by strong tannins. Let it rest 10 to 15 years in the cellar, then serve with something rich and meaty, like roast goose.

    Shows some mature sandalwood and mesquite aromas, with a light coating of cocoa powder over the core of crushed red cherry and red currant fruit. A nice sanguine edge holds the finish together. Drink now through 2014. 200 cases imported.
