Captivating aromatics of kirsch, huckleberry, wild flowers, white pepper, crushed rocks, fine talcum, exotic tea, and smoked game.
This wine beautifully encapsulates the Delmas style: profound aromatics, exquisite texture, fantastic complexity, and superb length. The palate shows precise balance with complex notes of blueberry, raspberry, kirsch, roasted herbs, truffle, white pepper, and bacon fat. The long finish reverberates with notes of dark chocolate, kirsch, baking spices, and cedar.
