Creamy, dark cocoa slides through the initial impression. Firm, chewy, and still youthful tannins provide a good grip on the mountain of fruit at the core of this wine. Teases of inviting, roasted coffee flutter at the edges, but don’t dare get in front of the relentless black cherry parade. This wine is drinking beautifully now, but its best is still in front of it.
Delara is a Persian word that translates as “capture one’s heart,” which of course is always our goal.
