    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Saint-Esprit's deep color has a dark, plum-like hue. The nose is classical Syrah, with berry fruit, violet, licorice and spices. It has a full, rounded palate with delicate tannins. Saint-Esprit is a unique wine in the Côtes-du-Rhône appellation and can be paired with Provençale-style cuisine, game, stuffings and mixed grills.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Delas Freres has produced two other outstanding sleepers of the vintage, and both wines dramatically over-deliver for their appellations. The brilliant 2009 Cotes du Rhone St.-Esprit is the best Cotes du Rhone I have ever tasted from Delas. Seventy percent Syrah, twenty percent Grenache and the rest Carignan and Mourvedre, this wine comes primarily form the Cotes du Rhone village of Cairanne. The wine has great fruit and a sweet raspberry and black cherry nose with some herbs, licorice, and pepper. Aged all in tank, the wine is medium to full-bodied and possesses sweet tannin as well as a long finish.

    This was what I was looking for when I order Cot de Rhone. This wine is smooth, rich, soft and fruity but not sweet just smooooth. It finishes with a blend of pumb,cherry and strawberry with the slightest bit of tanin lingering on the tongue to balance the fruit. WOW!

    Loved the wine. Usually stick with California Cabernet, but this was a pleasant change.
