Rhône Inspired Tasting Bundle
Take home three Rhône-style blends showcasing the unique terroir of Washington State. Taste along with DeLille Cellars Director of Winemaking Jason Gorski.
Our 2020 Roussanne offers a classic nose of lemon curd, lime zest, and wet stone. Time in the glass allows for aromas of ripe mango, candied ginger, and fresh spring flowers to emerge. The wine’s heavy core is supported by bright acidity and a persistent presence. The end result is a serious richness that embodies the graceful power Ciel du Cheval fruit delivers.
Traditionally “backward” in its youth, Cabernet Sauvignon (39%) drives the nose on the 2018 Doyenne, with savory rosemary and sage notes, before Syrah (61%) begins to show its influence with blue fruits and hints of vanilla. These two will swap and integrate with time in the bottle. On the palate, this integration is apparent even in the young wine, with blueberry, raspberry, and peppercorn flavors well-supported by Cabernet tannin and light oak toast.
Our 2019 Métier is simply luscious. An expressive bouquet of raspberry, bing cherry and rose petal are backed by whiffs of marionberry and earthy notes. Some whole cluster inclusion adds freshness and lift to accompany sweet, ripe tannins. This wine has the verve to be the wine of the vintage for DeLille.
