2013 DeLille Cellars D2, Columbia Valley, USA (750ml)
Availability: In Stock
This exceptional vintage demonstrates classical, expressive Merlot notes of floral spices, sweet herbs, pencil shavings, tobacco pouch and mixed berries. There are rich, generous flavors filling the mouth with black cherries, raspberries and kirsch liquor as well as cocoa powder and toasty oak notes. The palate continues with savory qualities tempered by an elegance that has come to define DeLille Cellars. Complete all this with a dramatic finish to experience a memorable and youthful D2.
--- 90-92 Barrel Score --- "DeLille's 2013 D2 Proprietary Red Wine is 54% Merlot, with the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. It has lots of spice, dried flower and savory herb qualities mixed with sweet cassis and kirsch-like fruit. Medium to full-bodied, balanced, supple and slightly forward, drink it on release and over the following decade." --- Review by Jeb Dunnuck eRobertParker.com #219 (June 2015)
