Seattle Wine Award Results

DeLille Cellars is honored to be named the 2021 MVP (Most Valuable Producer) by Seattle Wine Awards. D2, Minuit, and Four Flags earned Double Gold medals in this year's competition.

2018 Four Flags Red Mountain Wine2018 Four Flags Cabernet Sauvignon - 97 pts

Red Mountain

The Red Mountain pedigree of the 2018 Four Flags is immediately evident on the nose, with savory herb notes of thyme and marjoram intermixing with fruit aromas of cassis and blueberry.  Concentrated and serious on the palate, this wine nevertheless offers beautiful symmetry, with ample energy and a lingering delicate floral impression.  Oak influence is well integrated despite its youth, with mocha and espresso contributing to a plush, long finish.

 

2018 D2 Columbia Valley Wine2018 D2 - 96 pts

Columbia Valley

Mocha and milk chocolate notes from French oak integrate with beautiful cassis, dried cranberry, and cedar aromas on this 2018 D2.  This wine is instantly delicious on the palate with an inviting warm, soft entry. It rapidly builds in intensity of fruit mid-palate, offering remarkable length on the finish, with Red Mountain Cabernet (16% of the blend) apparent in the texture.

 

2019 Minuit Malbec Yakima Valley Washington Wine2019 Minuit Malbec - 95 pts

Yakima Valley 

In the lead on this 2018 Minuit, Malbec delivers an extraordinarily dark color and aromas of blackberry, black peppercorn and cocoa, with Cabernet Sauvignon providing intriguing cedar and graphite notes. Slightly more tightly wound then the prior vintage, substantial fruit begins to emerge as the wine opens. Classic Malbec fruit purity dominates on the palate, with enticing cracked pepper carried on a long finish supported by Cabernet tannin. Well-balanced throughout, with welcome freshness and energy on a moderate to full-bodied structure, this wine should continue to deliver and improve for a decade or more.
