Winemaker's Notes:

Dark garnet color. Vibrant, complex nose with scents of spice (nutmeg, black pepper), leather and rich red fruit. In the mouth, full-bodied with concentrated flavors, good tannins, and abundant fruitiness. An easy-drinking red, the perfect match with hearty stews, red meats and game, and strong cheeses. Can easily be kept 10 years or more.

Alcohol: 13.5% by volume

My Notes:

About Delas Freres:

Founded over 160 years ago, Delas Frères was acquired by Champagne Deutz in 1977.

Delas Frères cultivates vineyards on the steep granite slopes of the northern Rhône, in some of the region's most prestigious appellations. Additional grapes are supplied through long-term agreements with southern Rhone growers dedicated to providing only top quality grapes.

Crafted by winemaker Jacques Grange to epitomize finesse and elegance, recent Delas Frères vintages from the vineyards of Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Côte Rôtie, Condrieu, Côtes-du-Rhône and Côtes-du-Ventoux have won renewed praise for their intensity of flavor and excellent value.
