Special Magnum Release
The Peddler | Special Magnum Release
The 2017 Delmas Reserve wine, The Peddler, received a very special oak profile. The wine was aged in 100% new French oak. The wood was sourced from a highly coveted forest by a top tier cooperage employing a unique toast. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results.
The wine manages to pack serious flavor density while maintaining an almost haunting elegance. Simply put, it is sublime!
Aromatics: kirsch, framboise, cinnamon, honeysuckle, white pepper, bacon fat, Asian spice
Palate: Black plum, framboise, white pepper, black pepper, smoked bacon, cinnamon sugar (there is no residual sugar in the wine), Asian spice, garrigue, cigar tobacco, and blackstrap molasses
Finish: incredibly long and precise, echoing notes of kirsch, smoldering incense, espresso, and dark chocolate
The Peddler shows impeccable balance, profound complexity, and exquisite harmony. I am not prone to exaggeration, but this is off the charts good. Beg, borrow, or steal if you must, but get a bottle of this for the cellar!

The wine should reach maturity in approximately 8-10 years, and hold for approximately 20+ years.
