J.L. Chave St Joseph Offerus 2007
The seductive, endearing 2007 St.-Joseph Offerus exhibits meaty, black cherry and black currant fruit notes intermixed with hints of damp earth, forest floor and underbrush. It is a complex, powerful, elegant, mature, sexy St.-Joseph to enjoy over the next 5-6 years.

Inky ruby. Powerful aromas of blackcurrant, dark cherry and olive, with a smoky undertone of dark chocolate and violet. Weighty dark berry and violet pastille flavors coat the palate, with velvety tannins providing shape on the back. Rich but not especially heavy, with very good finishing cling to the flavors of candied flowers and cracked pepper. This could only be syrah
