DeLille Cellars D2 2014
Wine EnthusiastThis wine is a blend of Merlot (58%), Cabernet Sauvignon (36%), Cabernet Franc (5%) and Petit Verdot. Vibrant aromas of cherry meats, raspberry, dried herb and barrel spice are followed by a fruit-forward flavorful palate backed by firm tannins. It has a high yum factor.
Wine AdvocateThe ruby-colored 2014 D2 Proprietary Red Wine is the entry-level Bordeaux blend of the estate and is named after the D2 highway in Bordeaux. It's a soft, voluptuous, medium-bodied effort that offers loads of currants, black cherries, strawberries and leafy herb aromas and flavors. It's already hard to resist, yet there's quality tannin hiding under its fruit, and I suspect it will surprise you with its longevity.
Wine SpectatorWell-built, if rather tightly wound, offering focused notes of currant, clove and stony mineral. Hands-off for now. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best after 2018. 11,750 cases made.
