The Cabernet Sauvignon from Discovery Vineyard displays a poise and perceived lightness that gracefully distinguishes itself from other Cabernet blocks we work with at DeLille. Persistent blue fruits in the forefront are accompanied by sizzling bacon, graphite, and fresh hydrangea. Oak aromas of vanilla and baking spices sit appropriately in the background, while the velvety texture eases into the polished finish. There is plenty of enjoyment in this wine’s youth, but cellaring at least 7 years will surely provide more complexity and nuance.

Handsomely built, offering polish and structure, with lively black and red fruit flavors that gather mocha espresso and dusty herb accents. Finishes with sleek tannins. Drink now through 2031. – Tim Fish

Behind the Wine
2019 Discovery Cabernet
The reputation of DeLille Cellars has been built on the art of blending and a passion for crafting wines that combine different varietals and vineyard sources into seamless expressions of Washington State terroir. However, certain lots are so exceptional that we choose to showcase them as single vineyard and varietal bottlings, as reflected in this limited offering of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Perched above the Columbia River, the picturesque 40-acre Discovery Vineyard is rapidly gaining reputation for growing some of Washington’s best wine grapes. For this cuvee, barrels were carefully selected to showcase the inherent varietal flavors typified by the Horse Heaven Hills AVA.
