D2 Day Countdown
Mark your calendars – #DrinkD2Day is December 2nd! Pour a glass and celebrate this traditional Bordeaux-style blend showcasing the unique terroir of Washington State. 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 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 the winery’s most sought-after label.
First vintage 1992.
**Voted #30 on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2022!**
**#7 on Seattle Times’ Pacific Northwest Top 20 Wines of the Year!**
The 2019 D2 aromas dance effortlessly between savory and dried fruit characteristics. Cranberries, roasted coffee beans, cassis and burnt orange are highlighted by deep, rich barrel tones of nutmeg, vanilla bean, dark chocolate and clove. As the wine develops in the glass, the fruit profile shifts between red and dark fruits, a trademark of D2 that we love. An inviting freshness and pronounced herbal quality on the palate leads to a structure that is refined despite the wine’s youth. Be confident that this blend of 13 iconic vineyards throughout the Columbia Valley will cellar for 15+ years.

“Polish Meets Structure in D2”
“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. (2019 Vintage)”
Tim Fish, Wine Specator
“Fans from the First Sip”
“We have always enjoyed Washington wines but had never had DeLille until 20 years ago. We were at Del Frisco’s for our 10th anniversary and asked the sommelier for a Washington red wine recommendation to go with dinner and he recommended DeLille D2. We became fans from the first sip and have ordered and collected several bottles over the years… DeLille has become our favorite Washington winery ever since that evening!”

“Pure, Balanced, Undeniably Delicious”
“The 2019 D2 (60% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) is terrific, with a ruby/purple hue as well as gorgeous cassis and black cherry fruits, notes of spicy, dried herbs, and lead pencil, medium to full body, and a pure, balanced, undeniably delicious profile. It’s going to keep for 15-20 years and is one heck of a wine (2019 Vintage)”
“A Wonderful Wine”
“We had been to a dinner party last year here in the Ironwood Country Club, Palm Desert, CA community, and the host had served your D2 2018 wine… My husband and I had loved it so I ordered a 6 bottle shipment from you at that time. On January 6, 2022 our Country Club had their “Luck of the Draw” wine event competition and we attended with a bottle of the D2 2018 wine. The event had over 100 members and at least 50-60 different bottles of wine for the competition, all were placed in a brown bag and each attendee had 4 different blind tastes, each bottle produced 6 pours. All the participants selected ONE of the 4 wines in their tasting to say was their favorite and the D2 2018 wine we presented WON, as all 6 who tried it, selected it as their favorite! It is a wonderful wine and many people present who know much more than I about wine came over to see what grapes made the blend. I was thrilled to tell our good friend who had introduced us to the wine ”
