2016 DeLille "Four Flags" Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1419214 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark One of the gems in the lineup is the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Four Flags. This thrilling, sensational Cabernet Sauvignon has a beautiful perfume of red currants, spice box, new leather, and dried flowers. Medium to full-bodied, seamless, and thrillingly textured, it offers balance, remarkable purity, and a finish that won’t quit. While Red Mountain is known for producing powerful, structured wines, this is all about finesse and elegance. It will drink nicely for two decades. Drink 2019 - 2039. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Named for the four famous vineyards on Red Mountain, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Four Flags immediately shows power and elegance on the nose, with a fresh core of fruit and minerality, showcasing rich and velvety oak tones. The wine is rich and complex on the medium to full-bodied palate that's overflowing and expressive, with good depth and breadth, balanced tannins and the lifting support of oak spices and energetic acidity. It lingers long, with a tannic edge that will settle down with time, making it ready for food now. Only 1,500 bottles were produced. I recommend securing some for yourself before they are all gone!

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Blackberry, licorice, black pepper and minerals on the nose. Densely packed, fine-grained and nicely concentrated but a bit youthfully unforthcoming today, showing limited sweetness and early appeal. I find this a bit peppery, if not lean, in the early going, with a distinct coolness in the style of some '16s. Finishes savory and persistent, with a smooth dusting of tannins and some peppery herbs in a varietal way. Lay this one down. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "The fruit aromas of the 2016 Four Flags are fresh and focused, with blueberry, red currant and pomegranate mingling with barrel notes 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 lengthy finish, promising many years of graceful aging."
