DELMAS Syrah, Walla Walla Valley 2015

The 2015 Delmas Syrah is a compelling blend of 91.4% Syrah with 8.6% Viognier that is sourced from the esteemed SJR Vineyard, located in the Walla Walla Rocks region in Milton-Freewater. This outstanding Syrah was aged for 14 months in French oak (60% new) prior to bottling and is unfined and unfiltered. As this opens it releases deep aromatics reminiscent of black tea, wild blackberry jam, barnfloor, thyme, crushed wet rocks, milk chocolate and black olives. On the palate the texture is absolutely incredible, backed by a silky mouthfeel which gracefully glides across the palate. The black fruits are powerful, dense and layered adding in Umami, Hoisin sauce, sweet blood orange and wet stones which add complexity. This is another increddible release by Delmas and talented winemaker Billo Naravane. (Best 2017-2028) - June, 2017 (OB)
