Delille Cellars D2 2008

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Good full red-ruby. Aromas of plum, mocha, cocoa powder and graphite, lifted by a floral element. Sweet and deep, with strong floral and spice qualities adding piquancy to the lush, smooth palate. This distinctly claret-like wine spreads out impressively on the back end, finishing with sweet, fine-grained tannins and excellent length.

The 2008 D2, a blend of 55% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, is a multi-vineyard, multi-regional blend that must have been like a jigsaw puzzle to assemble. It is a racy, elegant, complex effort sporting aromas of lavender, thyme, espresso, and toasty black fruits. On the palate a hint of chocolate, black cherry, and blackberry make an appearance. This savory, lengthy, nicely balanced wine will benefit from 2–3 years of cellaring (although it can be approached now) and will provide pleasure through 2020.
