Deeply concentrated dark fruit aromas are brightened by zesty minerals and complicated by smoky bacon and Indian spice qualities. Broad and fleshy with dense cassis and blueberry flavors and a bitter note of cherry skin. Gains freshness with air taking a turn to brighter red fruits on the finish. This rich complex wine finishes with youthfully tight grip and lingering spiciness.

Giving up plenty of black fruits, smoked meats, lead pencil shavings and pepper, it has more than enough density and texture to stand up to its formidable structure, but needs another 2-4 years in the cellar. - Jeb Dunnuck

Winery

Delas Freres

Founded in 1835 by Charles Audibert and Phillipe Delas, the celebrated Delas Freres winery grows 30 hectares of vines comprising 10 hectares in Hermitage (including the Domaines des Tourettes estate), 2 hectares in Saint-Joseph, and 18 hectares in Crozes-Hermitage.

In addition to the grapes produced by Delas' own wine growing team, Delas' close relationships with like-minded owner-winegrowers ensure that the company is able to source grapes grown on individual parcels, which reflect their own unique terroir.

Exclusively a family-owned operation for over a century, Delas Freres joined forces with Champagne Deutz in 1977. In 1993, Deutz and Delas Freres were approached by the Rouzaud family, majority shareholder in the Roederer Group. They joined the Roederer Group under whose umbrella Delas' philosophy continues to flourish.
