Region: Rhone, France
Loron Saint Joseph 2016
Famous northern Rhone appellation close to Hermitage. On the nose, notes of blackcurrants, violets, olive/tapenade and bready aromas. On the palate, it is medium to full bodied, white pepper joins currant, violet and olive notes. Hint of raspberry on the finish. Soft tannins.
A juicy, lively and fresh effort that has a soft, easygoing, medium to full-bodied texture. Offering up plenty of floral nuances, smoke, leather and some green herbs, this blend of 100% Syrah should be consumed over the coming 3-4 years. From Loron, family owned since 1821.
