2019 Delas Saint-Esprit Cotes du Rhone
Produced from predominately Syrah with a good dollop of Grenache also included, bottling taking place after 8 months of aging. Inky black heart with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Streaming out of the glass are black raspberry and liquorice scents followed by herbs du Provence, scorched earth and pepper. Rich, juicy and concentrated, the delicious palate is awash with black raspberry, liquorice and subtle ripe blueberry fruits. Notions of scorched earth, infusions of fresh herbs and spice lie underneath. Finishes with slightly chewy tannins, ample freshness and a lengthy aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Fresh and inviting, with more fruit and depth than many of its peers. Offers a plum and cherry puree profile, laced with floral and red tea accents on the finish. Drink now through 2022.
