Product Description

The 2014 DeLille Cellars D2 is the winery's entry-level Bordeaux blend that's sourced from 15 prestigious vineyards throughout the Columbia Valley, almost half of those from the Red Mountain region. It's a bit tightly wound when first opened, but with decanting, there is a proliferation of red and black fruits on the nose and palate, including blackberries, cranberries, raspberries, pomegranates, black cherries, and marionberries. Wrapped around these fruit characters is a presence of mint chocolate, black olive, cedar, toasty oak, and vanilla. With bright acidity and good structure, this wine is extremely well built and will reward the patient drinker a few years of cellaring.

Varietal Composition: 58 Merlot, 36 Cabernet Sauvignon, 5 Cabernet Franc, 1 Petit Verdot
Appellation: Columbia Valley AVA
Aging: 18 months in 100 percent French oak, 55 percent new

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This wine is a blend of Merlot (58%), Cabernet Sauvignon (36%), Cabernet Franc (5%) and Petit Verdot. Vibrant aromas of cherry meats, raspberry, dried herb and barrel spice are followed by a fruit-forward flavorful palate backed by firm tannins. It has a high yum factor." -SS, 6/1/17

92 Points - Wine Advocate
"The ruby-colored 2014 D2 Proprietary Red Wine is the entry-level Bordeaux blend of the estate and is named after the D2 highway in Bordeaux. It's a soft, voluptuous, medium-bodied effort that offers loads of currants, black cherries, strawberries and leafy herb aromas and flavors. It's already hard to resist, yet there's quality tannin hiding under its fruit, and I suspect it will surprise you with its longevity." -JD, 6/30/17

92 Points - Vinous
"(this Columbia Valley blend of nearly 20 sources represents 35% of this winery's production; 11,500 cases were made in 2014): Bright ruby. Pungent fruit-driven aromas of cranberry, pomegranate and blackberry. Plush and seamless on the palate, with blackberry and blueberry flavors complicated by a savory dried-berry note that I associate with Red Willow vineyard. Wonderfully pliant from the start, this beauty finishes very long and suave, with utterly smooth tannins. Great fruit here!" -ST, Oct/2017

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"Well-built, if rather tightly wound, offering focused notes of currant, clove and stony mineral. Hands-off for now. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best after 2018. 11,750 cases made." -TF, 8/31/17
