Delas Freres Côtes du Rhône Saint Esprit 2016
|Region||France, Rhone, Cotes du Rhone|
The Saint-Esprit's deep color has a dark, plum-like hue. The nose is classical Syrah, with berry fruit, violet and licorice. It has a full, rounded palate with delicate tannins, making it a unique wine in the Côtes du Rhône appellation. Saint-Esprit pairs well with Provencale-style cuisine, stuffed tomatoes and eggplant, mixed grills and barbecue.
A blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Saint-Esprit is a screaming value. If offers bold black cherry and blueberry fruit aromas, lively fruit flavors, silky tannins and a crisp, lengthy mocha-tinged finish. Drink this fun, bouncy little wine over the next couple of years.
