Wine Advocate Tasting Note
The 2014 Saint Joseph Ro-Rée is more straightforward, with plenty of peppery, meaty and spiced red fruits aromas and flavours, as well as medium-bodied richness and a good finish. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years. 88 Points, Jeb Dunnuck – Dec 2016
Wine Spectator Tasting Note
A pretty, understated style, with a caressing feel to the flavors of cherry and plum preserves, lifted by a white pepper note that runs throughout. Reveals a lilting violet hint on the elegant finish. Drink now through 2019. 89 Points, James Molesworth – Oct 2016
