DeLille 2002 D2 Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))

This is the winery's Merlot-driven second wine, generally composed of barrels not used in the flagship Chaleur Estate. In this vintage it comes out a bit on the funky side, with scents that might be interpreted as reminiscent of truffles, leather and earth. Cedar, lead pencil and black fruits suggest its pedigreed sibling. Very tannic, earthy and substantial compared with previous vintages of D2. Paul Gregutt
