DeLille Cellars 2017 D2 Proprietary Red Blend Columbia Valley
DeLille Cellars 2017 D2 Proprietary Red Blend Columbia Valley
DeLille Cellars 2017 D2 Red Bland Columbia Valley

The 2017 D2 offers abundant dried cranberry and raspberry aromas surging from the glass, with intertwined darker fruits notes of cassis, blueberry, and blackberry. Delicately balanced oak influence contributes cocoa and coffee bean notes while remaining completely respectful of the fruit. This appealing wine is vibrant and extraordinarily fresh on the palate, with persistent fruit flavors of pomegranate and blueberry. Understated and subtle tannin provides welcome structure, while excellent early integration offers accessibility, generosity, and abundant pleasure despite the wineís youth. Blend: 66% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

"Opens with supple and expressive red currant, green olive and clove flavors, then shifts gears and takes on increasingly muscular yet polished tannins on the long finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot."


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 92 Points

"A blend of 66% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2017 D2 Proprietary Red Wine opens to a nose of dusty plum, silky cherry skin and black raspberry before showing hints of baking spice, dusty flower petals and baked earth. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is expressive and balanced across the mid-palate with lifting tannins and energetic acidity to make it food-friendly. Lingering flavors of cedar and sage persist in the mouth, as the wine stretches its legs on the winding finish, highlighting the red berry frame. D2 has always been a crowdpleaser, and the 2017 bottling continues that winning streak. The wine spent 20 months in French oak barrels (68% new) and then rested in bottle for eight months."


Jeb Dunnuck - 91 Points

"The largest production cuvée from Delille, the D2 is named after the D2 highway that runs from the town of Bordeaux up into the Médoc. Itís always a quality wine, and the 2017 D2 sports a deep purple/ruby color as well as Bordeaux-like notes of cedary herbs, lead pencil, tobacco, damp earth, and blackberries. Medium-bodied, balanced, and silky, itís unquestionably an outstanding wine that has a decade (or more) of prime drinking ahead of it."


Wine & Spirits - 91 Points

"D2 blends about two-thirds merlot with 30 percent cabernet sauvignon and a few dollops of cabernet franc and petit verdot. Itís bright and chewy, scented with briar, tobacco leaf and cherry, with a velvety texture and the flesh to get around a lamb chop."
