Ratings on Delectable

Jay Kline Delectable Pro

Being a 2013 Barolo, I expected this to be largely unapproachable and, at least initially, my a suspicions were validated. However, after about 30 minutes of swirling and coming up to temperature, it’s reticence faded away and instead, blossomed into a very attractive, youthful wonder. The nose was quite winsome with black licorice, roses, tar and dark fruits. One of those wines where the bouquet alone is enough to celebrate. On the palate, it was no quite as expressive and very primary with tart dark and red fruits and spices. The structure is intimidating at this stage. Long, mouth drying finish. I would suggest tucking these away for at least another five to ten years to get the most out of it. DIAM cork which I found somewhat surprising.

This wine is firm and elegant. Rich tannin and aroma of plums, a hint of tobacco and black chocolate.

Tobacco and tar. Lip-puckering acidity and tart red fruit that softens as the wine breathes. Subtle tannins and medium mouthfeel.
