It is a well-balanced, well-made wine. It is towards the lighter side than medium and has a very abrupt finish that is a bit on the acidic side. The problem I have with this wine is that it doesn't compare well with a good Syrah nor does it compare well with a good Grenache. It is a new world wine and so might appeal more to American tastes than people used to more traditional Cotes-du-Rhones.

Tasty southern French wine bordering on the complex with deep, tasty dark fruit. On non-decanted bottle, tight nose with hints of tar and fresh wet stone. In the mouth pleasantly bitter deep dry blackberry, cassis with hints of fig, earth, and pepper. Not sour. Finishes with hint of machine or nut oil and wood and leather. Medium body, medium plus acid, medium plus drying tannins.

Color ruby-red, nose has mild bubblegum and mild sweet ripe red fruit. On the attack tart raspberry, followed by light to medium body, moderate acid, and lighter tannins. Short finish with lingering tart fruit and nut flavor.

This is realy deep purple. The first night this bottle was open the tannins and acidity overwhelmed the other flavors in this wine. On the second night the wine had opened up and was showing nice bright cherry and blackberry. This is a great bottle for the price.

Black berries and cherries integrated with the right amount of spice along with a bit of minerally earth. It seemed a bit closed so it could benefit from two or three more years in the bottle. This wine is a great value and I intend to drink a lot more of it

    Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90The amazing 2007 Cotes du Rhone St.-Esprit (75% Syrah and 25% Grenache) reveals a northern Rhone orientation, but it is loaded with spice and black fruits, and displays a beautiful opulent texture as well as a gorgeous finish with impressive purity. Chateauneuf du Pape has also benefitted from the new attention to detail and upgraded quality.Wine Tasting NotesThe Cuvee Saint-Esprit shows the strength and a pepper taste typical of the Syrah grape. The color is deep garnet red and has intense red berry aromas. It is an exceptional full-bodied wine with fine tannins.

    On Backorder. Due in Feb. 19th.This is the first of the extremely impressive 2007 Rhones. Delas is a producer well known for excellent Northern Rhone wines and they've taken a new approach to this Southern Rhone beauty. Instead of using mostly Grenache it is a blend of 75% Syrah and 25% Grenache. It shows intenisty and character that goes well beyond it's humble appellation. Robert Parker scored it 90 points and said, "The Cotes du Rhone St.-Esprit reveals a northern Rhone orientation, ... loaded with spice and black fruits, and displays a beautiful opulent texture as well as a gorgeous finish with impressive purity."

    The Cotes-du-Rhone Saint Esprit is made from a blend of Syrah and Grenache grapes, which come from a small village in the Ardeche region. The vineyard's southern exposure on steep granite hillsides provides the best growing conditions for the vines. Winemaker Notes The Cotes-du-Rhone is made with whole grape clusters that are vinified using traditional methods. The crop is de-stemmed and the grapes are placed in a vat where they are gently pressed and pumped for two days. The juice is then fermented for three weeks in open stainless-steel tanks. The tanks are thermo-controlled at 64 and 82 degrees Fahrenheit. Tasting Notes The Cuvee Saint-Esprit shows the strength and pepper taste typical of the Syrah grape. The color is deep garnet red and has intense red berry aromas. It is an exceptional full-bodied wine with fine tannins.

    The 2007 Hermitage Les Bessards is more fruit-forward offering notes of concentrated black cherry and cassis fruit intermixed with licorice truffle earth and pain grille characteristics. Deep rich softer and more fruit-forward in a seductive opulent style this beauty should have 20-25 years of longevity. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
