2002 D2

The 2002 D2 shows a dark regal ruby color and bright aromas of cocoa, blackberries, fresh currants and black pepper spice. There is a soft plush mouth-feel typical of Merlot with black fruits, cassis and mocha flavors. The finish reveals length and tannins that are ripe and soft.

“Undoubtedly the finest D2 to date, the 2002 bursts from the glass with sage-laced dark fruits. It is a blend of 49% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot. Dense, rich, and medium to full-bodied, it is a broad wine with satiny layers of blackberries, spices, and brambleberries. An immensely impressive effort, it is big, lush, complex, and friendly.” – Pierre Rovani

Butternut Squash Risotto with Black Truffles

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.
