Ratings on Delectable

Joyce Lin Delectable Pro

Violet with red cherry, tart and sour cherry, slightly herbal, leathery with hint of tobacco leaf, somewhat spicy and smoky. High acidity, med plus to high tannin, bone dry and med body. Still too young to drink. Suggest decanting for at least 30 min before drinking.

Bright sour cherry, rustic farmhouse notes, balanced tannins = delicious. Love the ARPEPE wines.

Smoky tar, cherry jolly rancher. Earthy palate: underbrush, pitting soil. Dried herb savory note (slight green olive, as well) right up there with plump red fruit. Terrific wine - don’t miss.

Yeah, this is super young to be opening a mtn Nebbiolo. But very disappointed with his wine compared to prior vintages and virtually all things Arpepe. This was super tight, almost completely vegetal, with nary a huge bit of fruit to be found. Maybe a bad bottle, maybe a bad vintage. Bummer.

Really pretty and fruit centered Valtellina. As is generally true for the DOC, this is softer and a bit more floral than its nebbiolo cousins to the south. Accessible now, great with a wide variety of food, and plenty of development to come. Nice value.

A high altitude, cool climate, and finessed Nebbiolo that doesn’t need a fatty steak to cut the tannin. AR.PE.PE. Has delicate layered aromas of cherries, tar, crushed gravel, rose petals, and fresh cut flower stems. At 12% ABV it is lean and transparent showing a good dose of minerals and earth wrapped around flavors of raspberry and cherry beneath hidden hidden tannins. For the Burgundy lover.

Рябина, калина, кислая вишня, вареная свекла, лимонный сок, полынь, легкие незрелые зеленые тона. Тощее тело с нервной кислотностью и тонкими танинами. Компактно, холодно и сдержано, почти скупо. Тонко и с претензией на элегантность, но без глубины и текстуры.
