D2 From Delille / Chaleur Estate
the bouquet of the deeply violet-colored 2007 d2 jumps out of the glass with plums, rainier cherries, vanilla, spiced currents, caramel, tobacco, and a touch of toasted coconut flakes. varietal blend: 51% merlot; 40% cabernet sauvignon; 7.5% cabernet franc; 2% petit verdot
Syrah La Cote Rousse
the only one of betz's three syrahs to come from two separate vineyards, sited about a mile from each other on red mountain. three french clones and the classic phelps clone combine in a multi-layered expression of fruit, dried herbs and earth.
as washignton state's grenache vines age, the fruit they bear gains more varietal purity. and with every vintage betz is raising the concentration of grenache in besoleil in their attempt to create a classic southern rhone blend. grenache is fully 80% of this year's wine, the balance composed of 15% mourvedre and 5% syrah.
Doyenne Red By Delille
the 2007 aix is a wine-lovers wine, with charm to spare. on the nose, black fruits, a wide array of spices, and a hint of lavender come to the fore, with deep smoky and earthy accents from the syrah. the palate is delicate and mouth-watering, with tones of black raspberries, plum, pomegranate, and earth featured. varietal blend: 61% syrah; 35% cabernet sauvignon; 4% mourvedre
seductively classic syrah nose of pomegranate, grilled meats, flowers, and lavender. this wine is outstandingly rich and voluptuous on the palate, with a big black berry core, and earthy notes of lavender, tarragon, and spices. the finish is balanced and powerful, a great addition to the cellar. varietal blend: 61% syrah; 35% cabernet sauvignon; 4% mourvedre
