94pointsDelas Frères 2016 Les Bressards (Hermitage)

While decadently fruit-forward for Hermitage, this rich, unctuous wine maintains the region's characteristic minerality and earthen complexities. Ripe black-cherry and plum flavors are warmed by spicy notes of anise and caramelized sugar along with fine, smooth tannins. It's a ripe, rather potent expression of Syrah but finessed enough to improve through 2030 and likely hold further. Anna Lee C. Iijima
