A little flabby - surprising in N Rhône/ could use more acid. Beyond that, beautiful aromatics - dark cherry, violets, blackberry, hint of roast beef on the nose. Fruit goes to the palate along with graphite, and something oddly like lime peel. This vintage is not quite as “Northern Rhône-y” as I’d like.

Dark fruits on the nose. Juicy and delicate with easy tannins. Dry finish. Enjoyed it!

Classic Delas. Bone dry, lots of gamey character, olive tapenade, black and red fruit, black pepper, and a touch of white flowers. I love Northern Rhone but for me 13% alcohol leaves body and mouthfeel to be desired. A touch more alcohol and fruit would make me love this but Delas is classic and they make their wines super super dry and savory. Definitely a food wine.

Woods and graphite on the nose. Green olives, white peppercorn, and stone/mineral notes. Good fruit and delish!

Mild Syrah, Ann is and licorice finish. Smooth, doesn’t ruffle my tongue

Björnbär, blåbär, tobak, sträva tanniner och en rökighet. Ok till tacos men för kraftigt för dumplings med anka och ingefära.
