Tasting Notes

Robert Parker: 96 Points #219 Jun 2015 Jeb Dunnuck 96 Drink: 2020 - 2040 A wine that's rounded out beautifully since I tasted it in barrel, the 2012 Grand Ciel is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a great vineyard in one of the top terroirs in Washington: Red Mountain. Sporting a dense, opaque ruby color, it offers rocking notes of blackcurrants, espresso, graphite, and chocolate that continue to change with time in the glass. While there's plenty of oak here, it's nicely integrated, and there's no shortage of fruit or freshness. Full-bodied, layered, plush and beautifully concentrated, it needs 4-5 years of cellaring and will keep for two decades or more. The team at Delille, lead by longtime Washington wine steward Chris Upchurch, continue to produce and a great lineup of wines. Both the '12 and '13 here are classics, yet I think the nod has to go to the '12s, which have slightly more depth and richness. Nevertheless, these are all high quality and I think the Bordeaux blends are some of the most age-worthy in the state.
