Paul Jaboulet Aîné St. Joseph le Grand Pompee 1994
Deceptively graceful at first, with a Burgundian-like perfume, this quickly delivers a torrent of fruit--blackberry, boysenberry and black currant--that cascades over itself, pushed from behind by flavors of mocha, mineral, tar and violets. Long, sweet and pure through a densely structured finish.
Decanted 2 hours. Dark with a garnet rim. nose of chocolate with notes of soft cherry and maplewood. Medium body with soft tannins. Airy, candied cherry on the palate with great acid. Smokey stonefruit evolves on the palate and leaves a long and luscious finish of raspberries, tobacco and notes of oak.
Black-red with a salmon-caramel hue, this wine decanted over 3 hours and continued to evolve and smooth out. A nose of cocoa, tar, blueberries and blackberries with notes of violet, sage honey and orange peel. Balanced on the palette with notes of grapefruit, tart black cherry and stonefruit with a slightly tannic, but exquisite finish full of blood orange, smoke, huckleberries and subtle hints of vanilla and dark chocolate. There was plenty of acid and tannin left in this wine to make me think my other bottle will hold into the summer for a nice barbecue, but definitely good just drinking by itself.
Dusty nose with red berry, underbrush. On the palate, cola, sassafrass and musty red fruit. Good balance and flavors remain. Still very nice! 91 pts. 5/26/12

A dark ruby/plum color, the bouquet offers scents of damp forest, underbrush, prune, truffles, and roasted meats. Medium-bodied, soft, attractively rich, fresh, and vigorous, this excellent La Chapelle can be drunk now, or aged for 15 more years. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 1994 Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage la Chapelle 15000ml
