regular red robe; raspberry with smoke-pine notes shows on the nose, has a breezy backdrop. The palate gives tight, almost wiry raspberry fruit; there’s a steely feel to it, and it ends on chalky tannins. This is a spare style of St Jo, one with not a lot of flesh. A floral touch towards the finish is helpful. We are very much in New Wave territory here. 13°. 2026-27 Dec 2018
