2000 DeLille Cellars "Chaleur Estate" Yakima Valley Proprietary Red

SKU #1231478 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Sporting a fresh, pure nose reminiscent of roasted eggplants immersed in blackberries, black cherries and fresh herbs, the 2000 Chaleur Estate red reveals a personality armed with gorgeous depth and power. More intense than the Harrison Hill, yet less complex, it slathers the palate with earthy blackberries, cassis, and brambleberries. Projected maturity: now-2015. (PR)  (8/2004)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Ripe, round and generous with its smoky blackberry, cherry currant and black pepper flavors that expand and persist on the fleshy finish. A beautifully balanced wine that has a great future in the cellar. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2005 through 2012. 1,050 cases made. (HS)  (9/2003)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Red-ruby. Bright aromas of cherry, currant, chocolate, mocha and tarry oak. Sweeter and fleshier than the Harrison Hill release, with stronger oak notes of tar, marzipan, mocha and coffee. Finishes with big, ripe, chocolatey tannins and enticing lingering sweetness. (ST)  (12/2003)
