    February 18, 2018 - Wow. Wonderful structure for a bigger style, time has softened the edges and the age is starting to show. Should continue to improve in the coming years.

    June 29, 2017 - Previous note was a long time ago, but it's basically unchanged, just a nice softness. You can hold but it's so good now I don't think there's any reason to.

    May 19, 2017 - Mixed red & black berry nose, tobacco & spice, full bodied with ripe lush fruit, smooth finish with dense fruit flavor and medium length. this vintage seems a bit heavier and more concentrated than some of the earlier vintages. Went well with our grilled steak.

    February 19, 2017 - Wow had with leg of lamb. Delicious. Not a big noise but great fruit. Cherry. Ready to drink. Not a long finish. Balanced.

Washington Wine Report

  • By Sean Sullivan
    4/9/2010 (link) ***** points

    (DeLille Cellars Chaleur Estate Yakima Valley) A bright, fruit-filled nose redolent with cherries, blueberries, licorice, graphite, and light barrel notes. Rich and focused on the palate with lithe tannins and a pretty cranberry note on the finish. Shows remarkable restraint and finesse. 65.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 7.5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. Ciel du Cheval, Klipsun, and Boushey vineyards (95% Red Mountain). Aged in 100% new French oak. 14.1% alcohol. 950 cases produced. Give three plus years or extensive decanting.
