Delille Cellars Doyenne Syrah. Deep black purple color. Concentrated chocolate and raspberries are combined with espresso, white pepper and a floral nose. It is dense and dark with a wonderful plush mouth-feel and expressive balance. A rich and beautiful offering.
93 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Syrah contains 2% Viognier. Purple-colored with a brooding bouquet of bacon, pomegranate, lavender, and garrigue notes, on the palate this masculine, large-scaled wine is bursting with spicy black fruit and baking spices. Give this intense, lengthy wine 3-4 years of cellaring and drink it through 2021. Doyenne is the sister label of DeLille Cellars and is used for Rhone varieties." 93 points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Blackberry, smoked meat and sexy floral lift on the very ripe nose. Sweet, pure dark berry flavors are complemented by a tarry nuance and lifted by lavender and brown spices. Sexy and spicy but not at all an oaky style. This very classy syrah finishes with superb cut, fine-grained tannins and excellent length." 90 points from Wine Spectator: "This is beautifully aromatic, yet gets a bit puckery in the mouth, lacing its ripe blackberry and tar flavors with mouthwatering acidity. The finish makes it all come together, but this needs cellaring to settle into itself.
