DeLille Cellars

The 2017 Syrah from DeLille's estate vineyard, Grand Ciel, is immediately formidable, seizing attention with densely rich aromas of charceuterie, marion berry and blackberry, with a subtle and balancing whiff of blood orange. Luscious yet balanced on the palate, this serious effort is unmistakingly loaded with fruit, without being ponderous. Finishes dry, with dusty tannins and all parts in balance; this promises to deliver from the onset and for a decade and a half or more.
