2017 Red Willow Blend
YAKIMA VALLEY AVA
The initial offering of this nascent cuvee is Cabernet Franc (54%) dominant, a first for DeLille after more than a quarter of a century. Blended with Merlot (32%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (14%), the nose presents floral and herbal aromas of spearmint, toasted fennel seeds and carrot frond. At once intense and graceful on the palate, with persistent fruit flavors entwined with classic structure, the delicacy of Cabernet Franc is on full display here.
