Sipping Fine Wine

DeLille produces classic styles of Bordeaux, Rhone & Provence wines in the state of Washington. A blend of 58% Merlot, 36% Cab Sauv, 5% Cab Franc & 1% Petit Verdot. Dark Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits with toasty sweet spice notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry and cherry with cacao and subtle oak. Soft tannins, vivid acidity, lingering ending with a nice punch of fruit on the finish.

Medoc style Bordeaux blend. Terrific and serious minded. Forest floor, mint, red pepper, slightly green, tannic as a monster, pleasant acidity . Very well rounded and even keeled. Well made.

Latest go-to weekday wine, but spent all weekend drinking it. Bordeaux blend, balanced and layered plum and blackberry. Crowd pleaser too.

Always a favorite! Dark garnet in color, medium+ viscosity, medium- staining. Strong, delightful nose sees black pepper, vanilla, dried black cherries and raspberries, some anise. Palette sees medium+ acid, round tannins, crushed, baked, candied black cherries and red fruits, oak. Medium length finish.

Structured with plenty of grip, shows classic Merlot character with dark cherry & mocha notes. As it opens, some darker/black currant flavors emerge. Always a winner.
