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. This wine is yet another example of a long-standing theme at the winery – its 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.

Editors’ Choice – This is a blend of fruit from top sites Boushey, Harrison Hill and DuBrul. The aromas enchant, with notes of fresh and dried herb, orange rind, sage, cedar, plum and bing cherry. The flavors and plush and palate coating while bringing a lot of grace. It’s delicious. – Sean P. Sullivan

Behind the Wine

2019 Le Colosse

DeLille believes that Washington state produces some of the finest Merlot in the world, and Le Colosse is a tribute to this foundational varietal, invoking the people, vineyards, and winemaking techniques that we seek to build upon. Le Colosse, meaning “The Colossus,” refers to the constant discovery and accomplishment only possible due to the previous effort and exploration by others.
