DeLille 2004 D2 Red (Columbia Valley (WA))

Editors' Choice

An extraordinary, effusive nose, smooth and voluptuous, with spectacular focus and concentration, opens this wine. There is an herbal underpinning, and just a bit of tannic roughness, but it's nothing that won't soften up with time. This, along with Quilceda's second-tier red, is the best red wine value in the state. Still showing youthful tart, tight acid; it's chewy but focused. Good flavors of very tart cherry, plum and even red apple, leading into hints of menthol, cigar box, pepper and slate. Paul Gregutt
