Winemaker Notes

A big Harrison Hill vintage with aromas of deep black fruits, meatiness, leather, five-spices, ripe herbs and violets.

Expansive flavors of complex ripe black fruits, cherris and minerals, all in a rich yet elegant package.

Blend: 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Incorporating a touch more Cabernet Franc and made from 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot (the Petit Verdot always comes from the Ciel du Cheval vineyard on Red Mountain), the 2002 Harrison Hill is one of the richer, more full-throttle and ripe vintages for this cuvee out there. Loaded with notions of black currants, crushed rocks, toasted spice and licorice, it hits the palate with full-bodied rich, lots of fruit and a slightly evolved, ready to go style. There’s tons of richness here, yet its open knit feel makes me suspect it’s best consumed over the coming 4-6 years to be on the safe side.

DeLille Cellars, Washington
DeLille Cellars Winery Video

DeLille Cellars is a boutique artisan winery located in Woodinville, Washington. Founded in 1992 by Charles and Greg Lill, Jay Soloff, and winemaker Chris Upchurch, DeLille Cellars pioneered Bordeaux-style blends in Washington State (both red and white) - inspiring Robert Parker, in a visit to the original Chateau in Woodinville, to proclaim DeLille Cellars “the Lafite Rothschild of Washington State.”

DeLille Cellars is considered a principal influence in establishing Washington as a premier viticultural region with a strong tradition of quality and excellence over its 25-year history. Today, the winery has a portfolio of over a dozen Bordeaux and Rhône style blends true to the terroir of Washington State.

The winery's passion lies in showcasing the powerful, concentrated and structured fruit of

Washington State through the European art of blending - not only through various combinations

of Bordeaux and Rhone grape varieties, but also via combining fruit from acclaimed vineyards to

express the unique terroir of the region. DeLille Cellars focuses on the Red Mountain AVA and

grape sourcing from Washington's leading Grand Cru vineyards, including Ciel du Cheval, Grand

Ciel, Upchurch, Red Willow, Sagemoor, Klipsun, Boushey, DuBrul and Harrison Hill.

A large and geographically diverse AVA capable of producing a wide variety of wine styles, the Columbia Valley AVA is home to 99% of Washington state’s total vineyard area. A small section of the AVA even extends into northern Oregon!

Because of its size, it is necessarily divided into several distinctive sub-AVAs, including Walla Walla Valley and Yakima Valley—which are both further split into smaller, noteworthy appellations. A region this size will of course have varied microclimates, but on the whole it experiences extreme winters and long, hot, dry summers. Frost is a common risk during winter and spring. The towering Cascade mountain range creates a rain shadow, keeping the valley relatively rain-free throughout the entire year, necessitating irrigation from the Columbia River. The lack of humidity combined with sandy soils allows for vines to be grown on their own rootstock, as phylloxera is not a serious concern.

Red wines make up the majority of production in the Columbia Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant variety here, where it produces wines with a pleasant balance of dark fruit and herbs. Wines made from Merlot are typically supple, with sweet red fruit and sometimes a hint of chocolate or mint. Syrah tends to be savory and Old-World-leaning, with a wide range of possible fruit flavors and plenty of spice. The most planted white varieties are Chardonnay and Riesling. These range in style from citrus and green apple dominant in cooler sites, to riper, fleshier wines with stone fruit flavors coming from the warmer vineyards.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
