FEB 2022 ESTATE BUNDLE
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.
2019 Le Colosse
The three vineyards that make up the 2019 Le Colosse exemplify how delicious Washington State Merlot can be. Boushey Vineyard brings an earthy, brambly character that dominates in the wines’ youth. Red currant, bing cherry, and dried sage are offered up by Harrison Hill Vineyard, with chalky structure, blue fruits, and seductive richness present thanks to Dubrul Vineyard. Another perfect example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. This charmer exudes freshness on release and will only benefit from the tertiary flavors that time will allow.
The Malbec (70%) in our 2019 Minuit is sourced from three very different blocks from the Red Willow and Quintessence Vineyards. The riper, dense blue fruits, violets and intense color are brought on by the Red Mountain Malbec at Quintessence, while wild raspberry, red plum, and wonderful savory notes are issued from Red Willow. Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) from Quintessence Vineyard adds body and tension to fill in the mid-palate and drive the finish. This juicy blend promises to pair terrifically with your next BBQ.
