2018 Saint-Joseph Rouge "Terra Nostra" (Barou, Domaine)

Domaine Barou, Saint-Joseph Rouge "Terra Nostra", Rhone Valley, France 2018

{biodynamic} 100% Syrah

CASSIS & BLACK PLUM, LEATHER & A WHISPER OF CHIMNEY SMOKE

Saint-Joseph is a mystifyingly sprawling appellation - a narrow 40 mile strip from north to south on the Rhone river’s right bank. As one might imagine, quality from domaine to domaine is not consistent, but some of the absolute best Northern Rhone “values" (we’re talking about sub-$100, here) can be found in various corners of the region. This is a noteworthy contender for the most distinctive Northern Rhone red we’ve carried. It tastes like the label might suggest – autumnal, colorful, romantic, and mysterious. This is masterful Syrah that’s every bit as generous as its Grenache-driven neighbors to the south and Pinot Noir colleagues to the north in Burgundy.

Serving suggestion: Duck bacon. Venison. Riceberry risotto (made with smoked gouda & smoked carrot slivers).
