94pointsDeLille 2005 Chaleur Estate Red Wine Red (Red Mountain)

Editors' Choice

Chaleur Estate is DeLille's finest red wine; this vintage is more refined, elegant and precise than ever before. The 2005 is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot; it's especially ripe and expressive. Lovely details of ripe cherry, plum and cassis fruit are dappled with intriguing grace notes of sweet grass, fresh herb and cracker. This wine has grace and length, and the finish combines earth, herb, rock and light hints of toast. Paul Gregutt
