    December 12, 2016 - I had this after dinner on 12/12/16. It had an elegant, harmonious bouquet of blackberry, blueberry, plum, cocoa, black olive, licorice and spice aromas. The palate was silky smooth and completely integrated with flavors of blackberry, blueberry, plum, black olive, cocoa, mocha, licorice, pepper and spice…very suave, but a tiny bit short on verve! 91+

    Taste: really needed 1 hour to open up, became balanced with dark fruit, pepper and hint of black olive.

    February 12, 2016 - My wife and I tasted this at the carriage house tasting room on 2/12/16. It had a deep, elegant bouquet of violet, blackberry, plum, black cherry, black olive, pepper and spice aromas. The palate was smooth and nicely integrated with flavors of blackberry, plum, black olives, pepper and spice.

    April 24, 2015 - Dang. Thought I was opening an 02. Couldn't believe how fresh it was! Big sweet black currant fruit, ham, a little tar. Not as old world as I hope for from DeLille, but deliciously carries the bigness and balance of the vintage.
