92 Points Joe Czerwinski Wine Advocate 12/28/2018 My favorite of the 2017 Saint Joes from Delas was the 2017 Saint Joseph Sainte-Epine, which balances its dark notes of espresso and olive with mixed berries and even an exotic hint of stone fruit. Medium to full-bodied, it's rich and velvety in the mouth, with a long, supple finish. 94 Points JM Wine Spectator 01/09/2020 A suave and smoky style, with sandalwood, black tea, olive, juniper and bay leaf notes leading the way, followed by a core of lightly steeped bitter plum and blackberry fruit. Concentrated, showing latent length as all the elements take a late encore, supported by a lingering mineral echo. Should unwind a bit more slowly than most of its colleagues. Best from 2022 through 2035. 503 cases made, 25 cases imported.
