Delas Saint Esprit Cotes du Rhone, 2007

This wine is evolving for the better and still one of my favorite Southern Rhones from 2007.

Deep, dark ruby. Blue plums, spice, flowers and a hint of black pepper. Fuller bodied than the 2011 San Silvestri Barbera beside it and equally full flavored. I taste more Syrah than Grenache but also some violet-toned Mourvedre creeping in. Good length.
