Ratings on Delectable

Severn Goodwin Delectable Pro

Nose has fresh/bright cherry, spent espresso grounds, blackberry, moist-chocolate muffin, drying garden soil after a rain and ripe black cherry. Palate has ripe black cherry, ripe black currant, plum skin, moist soil, pure and complex, evolving with each sip. Great tart acidity with smooth, but notable tannins, youthful. Very pleasurable to drink. The second of several 2014 La Pousse d'Or bottles we acquired late in 2019. This, as expected needs another 8-12+ years (2030+) to show its truer self. Paired with well-rendered, Moulard duck breasts with a blueberry/veal demi-glace/wines sauce and our newly dug, boiled potatoes with butter and garden herbs. Nothing better than a new potato from our garden, I could almost eat them raw! Cork pulled ~10h prior, to allow for a slow oxygenation in a cool cellar space. Decanted another +2h afterwards.
