2018 Lot 3
2018 Lot 3 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from one of DeLille’s longest vineyard partnerships, Red Mountain stand-out Klipsun Vineyard. Initial aromas of blueberries, currant and macerated wild blackberries intermingle with barrel aromas of wood smoke, vanilla and roasted coffee, courtesy of this cuvee’s completely new French oak elevage. Typical Red Mountain characters of roasted earth and wild herbs (thyme, lavender, dried rosemary) offer wonderful balance to the depth and extraction of this wine. Despite the wine’s massive, bullish, concentrated quality, there remains a bright, fresh fruit quality and agility that keeps the wine lively. Decadent wood is just starting to integrate on the lengthy finish, with age-worthy tannin all promising wonderful aging potential of 10 – 15 years, potentially more.
