Winemaker's Notes

The impression on the nose is immediate with aromas of fresh cherries, cinnamon, plum brandy, mocha chocolate, fennel seed and cigar box. The array of bright nuances continues on the palate with classic "Bordeaux blend" flavors of black currants, black cherries, blueberries and mint. There are also delicate hints of black pepper, brown butter and toasty oak flavors that combine with rich and juicy mouth watering balance continuing through the lengthy finish delivering yet another delicious D2 vintage.

Blend: 55% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"Serving as second wine to the corresponding Chaleur Estate bottling, DeLille's 2009 D2 comprises 55% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot sourced from seven different vineyards, each prestigious. Tea, mint, and pungently high-toned herbal essences swirl around scents of cassis and cherry, all of which have their counterparts on a finely-tannic, lusciously juicy palate on which nutty, lentil sprout-like, and subtly saline savor adds depth and saliva-inducement that persist into a long finish."
