Emmanuel Darnaud 2018 La Dardouille (Saint-Joseph)

Aromas of sun-drenched cassis, smoke and granite introduce this powerful, concentrated Syrah. Sourced from the La Dardouille lieu dit and matured 15 months in wood (no new oak), it's a bold, boisterous expression of Saint-Joseph. Juicy black-cherry and blackberry flavors are balanced keenly by zippy acidity and a fragrant violet finish. Soft, silky tannins make the wine appealing young but it should drink at peak through 2030 and hold further. Anna Lee C. Iijima
