DeLille Cellars 2015 D2 Proprietary Red Blend Columbia Valley
DeLille Cellars 2015 D2 Proprietary Red Blend Columbia Valley
DeLille Cellars 2015 D2 Red Bland Columbia Valley

Inviting pure fruit aromas of cherry, cranberry and blueberries introduce this 2015 D2, all respectfully framed by appealing oak notes of cocoa and wood spice. Soft and welcoming Merlot drives the entry with red currant before giving way to the power and structure of Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit is well balanced with savory notes of toasted fennel seeds and dried rosemary, with enjoyable oak influence and firm tannins on the sustained finish. Blend: 58% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot.


Jeb Dunnuck - 91 Points

"The largest production Bordeaux blend from this estate is their D2 release, which is named after the famed highway leading up to the Médoc from the city of Bordeaux. The 2015 D2 is 58% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It offers a Pomerol-like bouquet of black cherries, leafy herbs, graphite, and lead pencil, and is medium to full-bodied, seamless and elegant. Readers wanting a taste of the style – and quality – from Delille should absolutely check this wine out. Drink bottles over the coming 7-8 years."


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 90 Points

"Exhibiting aromas of loamy soil, crushed currants and creamy new oak, the 2015 D2 Proprietary Red Wine is medium-bodied, chewy and rustic, with a good core of juicy fruit but a firm, somewhat drying finish that seems to be marked by tannins derived from its time in 55% new oak but which could also simply reflect the vintage. It's a blend of 58% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot."


James Suckling - 90 Points

"This has very full, bold and slightly jammy blackberries, as well as aromas and flavours blood plums. The tannins hold thick into the finish. What it achieves in body, it sacrifices in detail. It delivers straightforward pleasure for now. A blend of 58% merlot, 35% cabernet sauvignon, 6% cabernet franc and 1% petit verdot. Drink now."
