EFW 90+ We are always looking for great value wines that over-deliver for their price points, and we found a beauty here! This is a late release from Jaboulet that we could source from a local supplier at the right price and from an excellent vintage. Aromas red and black cassis, spices, a soil signature give way on the palate to this vibrant and focused Syrah. The palate reflects notes of black cherry, blueberry, spice box, earth, and underbrush. A little tight upon opening, the wine really blossomed with aeration and was even better on day two. The 2016 Jaboulet Jalet is the ultimate cellar saver for the red wine lover. We may never see this quality at this point again because of Tariffs and price increases from the Domaine, so keep that in mind. Our recommendation is to buy a few and drink them over the next 3 to 5 years!
