Over the last 25 years, we have occasionally created a wine in the cellar with unique and exceptional attributes, where the quantity is so limited there isn’t enough to offer all of our customers. Lot 3, now labeled as Klipsun Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, continues the tradition of showcasing a Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon for our wine club members.
Barrels were carefully selected to showcase the exceptional power and ripeness of Cabernet Sauvignon from Klipsun, a vineyard that consistently cultivates formidable wines with uniquely compelling depth of fruit.
We’ve opened our cellar doors with this special Library vertical to show our appreciation to you as a Wine Club Member!

Carefully barrel selected from our block of old vine Cabernet Sauvignon from the Klipsun vineyard, this cuvee’s deep, brooding and musky aroma of blackberry and mocha is balanced by a lovely cassis note. Massively structured throughout, this wine offers considerable reward for patience, and should cellar nicely for a decade or more. With time and air, classic notes of Red Mountain emerge, with sagebrush and lavender intermingling with dried fruit, black licorice, and a spicy clove hint from French oak cooperage.Learn More

One hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from our long-standing block at Klipsun Vineyard, 2017 Lot 3 presents a nose filled with gravel and crushed rocks to complement red and blue fruit aromas of pomegranate, currants and fresh plums. Juicy and bold on the palate, this concentrated and expressive wine delivers classic Red Mountain Herbes de Provence balanced by restrained black cherry and baking spice flavors. Absolutely colossal in both fruit and tannin, this beauty builds relentlessly on the palate. Barrel selected and extremely limited in production, this gem will reward patience in the cellar.Learn More

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.Learn More
