Winemaker 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

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

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.

A rugged, sunbaked plain that has long served as a haven for outlaws and rogues, Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of rebelliously powerful wines. With 11 smaller sub-AVAs, there is quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

This is mostly red wine country, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel standing out as the star performers. Other popular varieties include Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, and Rhône varieties both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruity, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
