DeLille Cellars 2014 D2 Proprietary Red Blend Columbia Valley
DeLille Cellars 2014 D2 Proprietary Red Blend Columbia Valley
DeLille Cellars 2014 D2 Red Bland Columbia Valley

The 2014 D2 has a notable dark ruby color with magenta edges. 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 offers a dollop of red fruit flavors in its lengthy finish. Blend: 58% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot


Wine & Spirits - 94 Points

"Merlot leads in this elegant, Bordeaux-inspired red; cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc fill out the blend. Its initial scents are savory: cedar and tobacco leaf; the flavors more given to spiced cherry and plum—merlot-driven in their nimble, succulent, light-toned fruit. As is the acidity, the wine pulsing and vibrant, a clean expression of Bordeaux varieties to serve with steak."


Wine Enthusiast - 93 Points

"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."


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 92 Points

"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."


Wine Spectator - 90 Points

"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."
