  • Opened at restaurant without decant. As it continued to open during the evening, I would recommend decanting for about an hour. Really nice expression of syrah and place. Light cherry aroma, with white pepper, blood and earth. Palate has medium weighted fruit that enters a little flat, but picks up balancing acidity and soft tannins along with rounder fruit by midpalate. Harmonious and expressive finish with fruit, meat and dirt all in play. Reminded me of Burgundy in its weight and structure, but certainly not in flavor profile.

  • Auction Of Promises Tasting (At Home): Double decanted 2 hours before drinking. Red with brownish tones bricking at edge. Meat iodine and blood on the nose as well as black fruits. Cassis plum spice and pepper on the palate - good finish

  • Klar, dyp rød med svakt oransjestikk i kanten. Flott, sødmefull, floral nese med kirsebær, velhengt kjøtt, søtlige tranebær, samt noe vanilje og krydder. Bløt og lett søtlig, varm frukt med fin fylde, men forholdsvis slank. Saftig og delikat, med fin syrestrek. Lett, tørr avslutning med mildt pepper.

  • Rich, sweet nose with black fruit, spices and forrest floor. In the mouth the wine follos the nose. Very pleasent mouth feel. Deep and mulitlayered.

  • A nice surprise. Tasted this a couple of years ago and found it overdone, heated. While it is certainly toasted and quite obvious from a warm vintage, it has gained elegance, a peppery, iron-like character, true to the soil. While not a great Hermitage, rather a modern one, it is still a very good wine with years to go - I will wait at least 3 years before I try again, and I expect to find more of it's origins then - the oak is still evident here.

    (Delas Frères Hermitage Marquise de la Tourette) Medium red violet color with pale meniscus; ripe berry, port and plum nose; ripe berry, plum and spice palate, a little tight and young yet; medium-plus finish 92+ pts.

    (Delas Hermitage Marquis de Tourette Rouge) A dense and lovely array of roasted nuts and fruits on the nose here. A big, sweet texture, backed up by sufficient structure. In fact this is a very balanced and appealing wine. Lovely core of ripe tannins and correct acidity. A different style to the 1998, but again the quality of the vintage shows.
