Saint Joseph 'Terre d'Encre' from Domaine Georges Vernay is a classic dark, Northern Rhône Syrah - restrained violet and blackberry scents and a lively black fruit palate with some good tannic grip and a fresh acidity.
"The Burgundian-styled, medium-bodied 2010 St.-Joseph Terre d’Encre exhibits notes of powdered minerals, damp earth, raspberries and strawberries. With well integrated acidity, tannin and wood, it should drink well for 5-7 years. 86/100, drink 2012-2019."

"The stunning 2010 St.-Joseph ranks alongside the finest wines of the appellation, including Guigal’s l’Hospice and Chapoutier’s Les Granits. It boasts a dense purple color along with scents of kirsch, blackberries, crushed rocks, spring flowers and licorice. It needs 2-3 years of bottle age and should drink well for 15+ years thereafter." RP 93, drink 2014-2029.
