It's been a while since I last used Delectable mainly because I haven't been drinking much (thanks for the kind reminder @Delectable Wine). The whole COVID situation has made it a whole lot harder to find good wines, especially in my hometown. Fortunately, we stumbled upon a list at a restaurant whose owner happens to be an avid wine lover too. While we definitely had to pay a premium for this bottle, it was so good to finally drink a well-stored red in the tropics, and a favourite producer at that.

Typical Duroche elegance, marked with distinct village characters and the vintage's fruity exuberance. The nose is ripe and generous, with fresh black cherries, crushed strawberries, pretty lavender charm, and a touch of earth. A whiff of volatile acidity seems to lift the fruit here. The palate follows with plush and supple texture, darker fruits taking centre stage, some warm spices, and a snappy finish. Expected a little more mineral crunch and a redder fruit profile, but this was still so easy to drink. Transparent and pure. Definitely qualifies as a red kabi.
