DeLille Cellars

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Syrah 2014
Columbia Valley, WA, $36.99

The 2014 Doyenne, which was previously known as the AIX, sports an inky ruby/purple color to go with lots of bouquet garni, dark fruits, licorice and a hint of graphite. Medium to full-bodied, ripe and with beautiful purity (which is common in all of these 2014s from Delille), it should drink nicely on release and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it evolve gracefully for 15 years or more. 91-93. Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate, 225
