- Vincent Paris St Joseph Les Cotes 2012 Product #28630 (In Stock)
An outstanding, simply irresistible, example of elegant, pure, Northern Rhone Syrah to enjoy now and over the next 5+ years. Compelling aromas of dark fruit, smoked stone, spice and cracked pepper with a touch of exotic flower. The nicely intense flavors feature sweet and ripe berry - black cherry, crushed raspberry - with perfumy accents of licorice, soy and sweet vanilla. The wine glides across your palate like a fine Burgundy or Oregon Pinot before the silky tannins come up and leave cracked pepper, warm stone, and more exotic floral flavors lingering behind. Perfectly ripe at 12.5% and wonderfully easy to drink despite its complexity and depth.
“Bright purple. Vibrant dark fruits on the nose, with hints of Asian spices and a floral element adding complexity. Deep and sweet but lively and precise as well, offering vibrant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of licorice. Silky tannins build on the long, pliant finish, which leaves smoke and peppery spice notes behind.”International Wine Cellar 90-92 points
