J.L. Chave St. Joseph Offerus, 1999


Although the price has increased a bit in recent years, Chave's St. Joseph Offerus is still one of the best values in Northern Rhone Syrah. And this bottle has aged well over 20 plus years.

Deep ruby, bright and clear. Black fruit, anise and aromatic herbs on the bouquet. Ripe fruit on palate from front to back. Good acid structure. A hint of black pepper on the finish. This is definitely Northern Rhone Syrah rather than Australian Shiraz. I like it.
