The D2 is the second label for the winery's Chaleur Estate red, and includes juice from many of the state's top vineyards, about half on Red Mountain. Forward fruit runs to strawberry/raspberry/cherry, with hints of leaf and herb. There is also some subtle oak and just a hint of bacon fat and smoke in the light finish. Paul Gregutt

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
