DeLille D2 2019

America, Washington

The 2019 D2 aromas dance effortlessly between savory and dried fruit characteristics. Cranberries, roasted coffee beans, cassis and burnt orange are highlighted by deep, rich barrel tones of nutmeg, vanilla bean, dark chocolate and clove. As the wine develops in the glass, the fruit profile shifts between red and dark fruits, a trademark of D2 that we love. ​An inviting freshness and pronounced herbal quality on the palate leads to a structure that is refined despite the wine's youth. Be confident that this blend of 13 iconic vineyards throughout the Columbia Valley will cellar for 15+ years.

Winery Description

Robert Parker has called DeLille Cellars the “Lafite Rothschild of Washington State.”  It is no coincidence that this boutique winery is often compared with First-Growth Bordeaux Chateaux.  DeLille Cellars is dedicated to handcrafting elegant wines in the Bordeaux  style, using only the very finest hand sorted grape clusters to make their wine.  These sophisticated wines are made to uncompromising standards of quality.  All of the wines are aged in new French oak and are bottled unfiltered.  Winemaker Chris Upchurch talks in terms of ‘complete wine’, with qualities like opulence, mouthfeel, balance and elegance.  Chris’ goal is simple: to blend the very best hand-crafted, Bordeaux style red and white wines made in the state of Washington.  A satestament to his success, DeLille set the record for the highest price paid for a bottle of Washington State wine at auction ($16,000 in 1997).
