2020 D2 New Release 🍷Drink D2 Day Offer – $39 SHOP
D2 takes its name from the grand route du vin, or great wine road that travels through the historic region of Bordeaux. Always leading with Merlot, D2 is a traditional Bordeaux-style blend sourced from over a dozen of the state’s most prestigious vineyards across the Columbia Valley. The wine offers the ultimate expression of Washington State terroir and has become DeLille’s most sought-after label.
D2 is sourced from over a dozen Columbia Valley Vineyards, including Red Willow, Harrison Hill, Ciel du Cheval, Klipsun, Boushey, DuBrul, Upchurch and Grand Ciel.
2020 D2 will be released Thursday, December 1st!
Showcasing a classic layering of red and dark fruits, our 2020 D2 is built upon a softer, approachable structure and style that allow for this wine to be so reliable to be enjoyed in its youth. Whiffs of dried cranberry, black cherry, vanilla bean, and lavender flower flow into a palate filled with flavors reminiscent of milk chocolate, green peppercorn, and fresh ground nutmeg. Many of the state’s most heralded sites provide pure fruit and savory characteristics here, with toasty oak influence deftly supporting in the background. Enjoy now with a gentle decant or cellar for up to 15 years.
27% Cabernet Sauvignon
8% Cabernet Franc
4% Petit Verdot

The following course features a side-by-side pairing of the 25th vintage (2016) and the newly released 2020 vintage.
“Polish meets structure in this red, which offers well-defined black cherry, toasty spice and bay leaf accents as this slowly unfurls toward fine-grained tannins. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2030.” – Tim Fish, Wine Spectator

In 2020, the 2017 vintage of this Bordeaux-style blend ranked #63 on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 with 93 points.
“Opens with supple and expressive red currant, green olive and clove flavors, then shifts gears and takes on increasingly muscular yet polished tannins on the long finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2028. 12,600 cases made. — Tim Fish, Wine Spectator
This is a very cool dish because it is vegetarian, yet the cheese and truffles bump it up to a red wine pairing. It is perfect with the DeLille Cellars Merlot-dominant D2. For the carnivorous, add a short rib on top. Vegetarian or not, everyone is happy. Do not fear the truffle. As with many things, they are available on the internet for most of year.
