    March 15, 2016 - Initially served at low 50s F and tasted like a somewhat sharp burgundy with rustic Overtones. With air in decanter and some warming towards room temperature it got more fruity and a bit more new world in flavor. Second day was a bit jammy. Overall very nice but i thought was better with less air and a bit cooler temp.

    December 6, 2015 - Drank at dinner party, no notes. This is classic Delille, a master class in blending. Seamless integration, the whole is greater than the parts. Classic Washington iodine, salinity, soil and black fruit. Decanted for 4 hours before drinking, this is starting to shine and will have another brilliant 4-5 years.

    October 9, 2015 - P-n-P. Didn't take long to open up. vibrant nose. Quality fruit and nice balance and finish.

    December 27, 2014 - After being decanted for 2 hours, the nose is still bright and fresh fruit. Color in glass is dark and brooding with clarity absence of sediment. The taste is balance of firm acidity, dark berries, and itegrated tannins. Great to drink now but will benefit with 3 years more cellaring. Glamorous and classy wine. Great with Prime Rib roast.
