External Reviews for Delicato Syrah
This spicy and expressive Aussie-style wine leads with sweet black cherry and black pepper flavors, finishing with surprisingly ripe tannins. Itrsquo;s perfect for a spicy lamb shwarma.
Want straight-ahead sweet blackberry-dark cherry fruit and a creamy, rich texture? This button-pusher has it. Itrsquo;s hard not to like, with its licorice, toast and vanilla shadings. Simple, but it still shows texture, good integration of the oak and a touch of pepper on the finish. All this and a lovely price.
Bright and outgoing, with fragrant spice, black currant, black cherry and grapey flavors. Ripe tannins and toasty oak on the finish. Drink now through 2004.
Herbal, black cherry and beef flavors are round, with modest tannin. A very tasty wine for the money. Drink now through 2004.
The 2001 Syrah is a 150,000-case cuveacute;e offering a deep ruby color as well as an authentic bouquet of blackberries and currants, tangy acidity, no hard edges, and a plush, unexpectedly persistent mouthfeel. Enjoy it over the next 1ndash;2 years.
The family name is Indelicato, the wine is called Delicato and the juice is certainly delicious, if not necessarily delicate. Big-time growers, they own Montereyrsquo;s San Bernabe Vineyard mdash; the worldrsquo;s largest continuous vineyard. Grape suppliers to many California brands, they are well-equipped to deliver value, as in this creamy flavorful Syrah. This star quaffer pushes the pleasure button hard with its sweet dark fruit and attractive price.
The grapes for this impressive Aussie-style Shiraz, from Lodi and Clarksburg, are ripe; the palate boasts rich flavors of cherries, black raspberries, blueberries and plums. Feels succulent, with a smooth texture and a long, sweetish finish, but itrsquo;s perfectly dry. At this price, you canrsquo;t go wrong.
