Matt Lasater Delectable Pro

Great density on the palate that remains focused. Very seamless across the palate, with oak, acid, tannin, and alcohol all in balance. Classy but still has a wholesome nature to it. Beautiful aromas and flavors of cooked mulberry, blackberry jam, charred meat, pastille, bacon, cedar, bitter roots, graphite, woodsmoke. Drinking great right now

Hope this is in a “dumb phase” pleasant but not expressive. Gonna wait 5 or more years before I open the next.

Terrific wine - densely packed earthy, dark fruit coulis character, a little savory green leaf accent, and a distinct aged meat note lurking in the background. Amazing length, tons of umami...this will need lots of time to unwind, but when it does it's going to be excellent.

Not much fruit and more secondary on the nose. Full and fairly rich on the mid. Probably too ripe to get the peppery notes from this wine. Great wine but not as old-world as I would have imagined.

Savory meats and forest floor. The Domaine JL Chave St. Joseph never ceases to impress; Arguably the greatest value for rouge in the Northern Rhône.

The Chave for the rest of us? As a huge fan of Chave Hermitage, but not of the price and decades you need to wait while allowing them to mature, The Chave Saint Joseph is a great alternative. The bouquet displayed layers upon layers of dark fruits, roasted plum, grilled herbs, black earth, charred meats and dark floral tones. On the palate, it was lifted and finessed, but deceiving so, as its fruit intensity came forward with time in the glass. There's a savory richness to its black fruits, which were strewn with chiseled minerality and inner floral notes. Dark floral tones, bacon fat, and the freshest, ripe cherry fruit you can imagine, lingered on the finish. This is a serious wine that's just waiting to be truly discovered.
