Natalie's Score: 91/100

A towering French red wine from the Rhone Valley, with a firm grip on the palate and big toasted dark fruit aromas and flavours. Full-bodied with a savoury finish. Needs cellar time. This is a blend of Syrah (75%) and Grenache (25%) grapes that finishes with dark spices, clove and pepper. Pair with prime rib.

Food pairings: Prime rib roast, pulled pork sammies, grilled meats in a black bean sauce.

Reviews and Ratings

Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This well-made, charming red Côtes du Rhône is a lip-smacking delicious blend of Syrah and Grenache from the fantastic 2015 vintage. Bursting with aromas and flavours of ripe black cherries and blackberries with a hint of spice. Fresh and vibrant palate with smooth tannins. Plush, luxurious mouthfeel. Closes in a lingering, peppery finish. A given as a pairing with grilled lamb. Tasted October 2017. Tania Thomas – www.runawaygrape.com
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The Delas winery is owned by Louis Rogederer, the makers of the beloved Cristal. This blend from the Rhone Valley is comprised of Syrah and Grenache displaying rich flavors of reduced dark fruit, firm tannins and a lengthy spicy finish. Would benefit from some time spent in the cellar.
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted Oct 1, 2017. Colour medium ruby red, good thick legs. Aromas and flavours of, raspberry, blackberry, red berry jam. Taste, dry, medium mouthfeel, smooth tannins and good acid. Mouthwatering black tea finish. Nice wine good price makes for an everyday drinking wine or for casual entertaining. I would try it with stews, beef and or vegetable,
Calf liver.
