Ratings on Delectable

Eric Egan Delectable Pro

A great bottle; quite dark but by no means opaque super-tuscan; served quite cold but really opened up in the glass, shedding the light notes of petrol to reveal a startlingly brilliant fresh blackcurrent skins with notes of tobacco, freshly turned soil, and hints of thyme and stocks. Nicely tannic with surprisingly but beautifully present acidity. Stunning with fresh pasta and goats cheese! Tempted to get a case so I can see how it develops over the next ten years. Could go either way into secondary; full marks and top of the class or the tired high-school drop-out in a second rate early John Travolta movie ...

Tuscan beauty...nose of flowers, dark fruits and rosemary. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and gorgeous, refined fruit. Complex and seductive.
