DeLille Cellars Metier Cabernet 2021
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
"Offers good energy and refined flavors of blackberry, dusky spices and black olive that build structure toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2031." Tim Fish Wine Spectator 91 points Drink 2023-31
A smooth as silk mouthfeel and velvety tannins make this one easy-sipping Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark plum and red apple aromas are flanked by spicy bursts of cloves and juniper berries. Flavors of ripe blackberries, black tea and dark chocolate lead to a long finish.
The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Metier is unexpectedly fresh with zesty red berries, peppery florals and wild herbs. It boasts tart red fruits and inner herbal tones with mineral underpinnings, all kept nicely in check by zesty acidity. This finishes with a staining wild raspberry concentration and grippy tannins that frame the style well. The Metier Cabernet Sauvignon is produced mostly from Candy Mountain fruit.
