Ratings on Delectable

Will Stanley Delectable Pro

Peculiar. Incredibly acidic - like Barolo but without the tannins (tannin is quite mild). The acidity is felt not on entry but as the wine moves through the palate, at the back of the tongue and roof of the mouth. There is very sour blackberry, crushed cherry and some (misplaced?) green pepper and green peppercorn notes, alongside the acidity which has a white grapefruit edge. Very taught, linear and quite difficult to appreciate beyond that wall of acidity. Ultimately quite a confusing wine, but I wonder if this just needs a few years laying down to allow the acidity to better integrate. Had improved by the third glass, after three hours of air, with a pleasingly dry finish, but nonetheless I see this as a wine that could improve.

Some funky mushroom and soil aromas prevalent but mostly about the black fruit; fig and anise are there along with dried flowers and a touch of granite. Nice.

Nice acidity and good amount of minerality. More savoury than other Garnachas I’ve drunk with good complexity for the price. Nice with lamb and rosemary. Paid $24 at Vino Carta.

So complex. One of my all time favorites under $20. Always a treat if you can find it.
