DeLille Cellars Grand Ciel Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

America, Washington
DeLille Cellars Grand Ciel Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2014 Grand Ciel Cabernet Sauvignon offers impeccable balance, emphasizing the focus and elegance of our estate vineyard.  The power and structure of Red Mountain is showcased in the aromas of blue and black fruits with dried earth, Herbs de Provance and subtle rose petal notes.  The wine is forward and powerfully dense in the mouth, while remaining remarkably supple.  Cassis, anis, pomegranate and marmalade flavors give way to integrated eucalyptus and sous bois (forest floor) nuances from the cooperage.  A long finish promises exceptional cellaring time.

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).
