Winemaker Notes - In an outstanding Merlot year coupled with the addition of Red Willow Vineyard Merlot to the blend, our 2008 D2 does not disappoint and can be expected to stand out as a stellar example of the vintage. This wine has an extremely expressive nose of toasted black cherries, violets, lavender, thyme, all encapsulated in subtle mocha espresso from the oak. On the palate, rich dark fruits of blackberries and black cherries co-mingle with chocolate nuances. The 2008 D2 is extremely charming, rich and unusually complex -- a truly exceptional vintage for D2.
