Dark garnet color. Vibrant, complex nose with scents of spice (nutmeg, black pepper), leather and rich red fruit. In the mouth, full-bodied with concentrated flavors, good tannins, and abundant fruitiness. Can easily be kept 10 years or more.
Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Haute Pierre, a blend of 65% tank-aged Grenache and 35% barrel aged-Syrah, is drinking beautifully at present. Offering copious aromas of black cherry jam, cassis, licorice, forest floor, spring flowers and bouquet garni, this full-bodied, dark purple-colored wine will benefit from several more years of cellaring. It will last for 15+ years.  (Oct 2012)

Wine Spectator 93 points - Offers the focused ripeness of the vintage, with a lightly steeped edge to the plum, red currant and raspberry fruit, while extra pastis, singed apple wood and red licorice notes fill in on the finish. Lovely perfumy spice notes drape over all of it, with cut and drive on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2025.—J.M. (Aug 14 2013)

Wine maker notes
After harvest, the grapes are crushed, destemmed and fermented in open cement tanks for 12 days. Maceration lasts 8 to 10 days to obtain high extraction of flavors and carbolic acid. After pressing, malolactic fermentation takes place in the tanks, followed by 11 to 18 months of aging in large oak casks. After blending, the wine rests an additional year in-bottle before release.

Technical notes
COMPOSITION: 90% Grenache, 5% Syrah, 3% Mourvedre, 3% Carignan

Other text
Located between Avignon and Orange, wines from the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation are among the most prestigious of the southern Rhone. These blended wines are made from grapes grown in the region’s hills of red clay covered with quartz pebbles. A negociant wine, the Delas Chateauneuf-du-Pape rouge is made with grapes purchased from growers with whom the winery has worked for decades.

Food pairing
An easy-drinking red, the perfect match with hearty stews, red meats and game, and strong cheeses.
