2005 E.Guigal Lieu-dit Saint Joseph. 13%

IMG_1159

The wines from Saint Joseph are generally 100% Shiraz.

Black pepper, bacon and blueberries.

Very linear with a good grip on the palate.

Immense structure, with a wall a tannins.

Still a baby. Come back in 5 years when this has had a chance to soften out.

$65 from Lamonts in Cottesloe when it was released back in 2008

Tasted 17th December 2012
