Delille Cellars Chaleur Estate 2008
Nose of black cherry, plum, graphite, vanilla and fresh sage, with white pepper. Flavors follow along with thyme and bittersweet chocolate and espresso powder. Understated acid and more fruit driven style. Good structure though and nicely layered. Elegant wine. 95 pts. 8/12/11 at Tasting RoomAdd winemaker's notes

Tasted again 8/5/09 and liked it a bit more this time.
For a sauv blanc and semillion blend, this was very dry and woody. Very toasty. Much like white Graves, but I found it to be slightly less appealing. Not bad, just not fantastic in my opinion.
A bone dry white that is oaked and very balanced. The fruit is secondary and is mainly citrus.
