2016 DeLille "D2" Columbia Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1461931 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright red-ruby. Plum and redcurrant aromas complemented by cool Cabernet Sauvignon notes of tobacco leaf and herbs. Sappy, broad and palate-saturating , delivering lovely concentration and silky depth to its flavors of red berries, spices, sage and herbs. This very well-balanced blend conveys an impression of more even fruit ripeness--and virtually no overripeness--than the 2015 version. Lovely sweetness of fruit with good shape and structure from fine tannins. D2 began as a second wine, but winemaker Gorski now refers to it as "a wine on purpose." (ST) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

Outer quote mark The 2016 D2 is mostly Merlot but includes 34% Cabernet Sauvignon and a splash of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. It has a Bordeaux-like bouquet of tobacco, earth, lead pencil, and graphite, with plenty of ripe dark fruit. Rounded, medium to full-bodied, and textured, it’s a terrific second wine to drink over the coming 10-15 years. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 D2 Proprietary Red Wine is a blend of 59% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The nose displays a lush and dense core with dusty currant, plum and black raspberry sprinkled with a rocky minerality. The wine is medium to full-bodied on the palate, with deep concentration and focused balance, delivering complexity through the mid-palate and ending with a long, concentrated finish.
