Ratings on Delectable

Ian Staub

Super complex nerello with 10 years on it - sweet cherry & smoke; herbaceous and dusty, grapefruit rind and blood orange. Intense, somewhat Burgundian (similar to R. Lopez de Heredia’s Viña Bosconia) with some tasteful Brett peaking through. Aroma wafts out of the glass. Palate is on the austere side, super dry but provides tart fruit and grippy tannins that suggest this could go another 10 years and only get better.
