All Syrah brought up in used barrels, the 2020 Saint Joseph Offerus is a classic Northern Rhône with its darker berry fruits, peppery herbs, violets, and gamey nuances. With beautiful ripeness (not underripe or overripe), medium body, nicely integrated acidity, and fine tannins, it shows the quality of this incredible vintage and is well worth seeking out. It's terrific today and is perfect for enjoying over the coming 7-8 years or so.
