DeLille Cellars Four Flags Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

America, Washington
DeLille Cellars Four Flags Cabernet Sauvignon

The fruit aromas of the 2016 Four Flags are fresh and focused, with blueberry, rec currant and pomegranate mingling with barrel note of cocoa nibs and wood smoke.
Sourced solely from Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine beautifully showcases the typicity of the AVA, with inviting notes of cedar, lavender and bay leaf.
The palate offers generous flavors, with chocolate covered cherries and tapenade carried by fresh acidity.
Ample, fine-grained tannins carry the flavors through a lenghty finish, promising many years of graceful aging.

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).
