2008 DeLille Cellars Chaleur Estate Red Wine Red Mountain
Producer: DeLille Cellars
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Bordeaux Blend
Region: Yakima Valley
93(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011
(a Bordeaux blend based on 64% cabernet sauvignon; mostly from Ciel du Cheval and Klipsun Vineyards): Good deep red. Red cherry, cocoa powder and sexy oak tones on the rather cool nose. Then supple, sweet and deep on the palate, with brisk acidity and firm tannins giving solid structural underpinning to the flavors of red and darker berries and spicy oak. Finishes broad, sweet and very long. Like most of the best 2008 reds, this should age very well.
