2013 Symposium Pinot Noir

Our 2013 Symposium has a delicate, slightly hazy ruby hue and is distinguished from other Fort Ross Pinot Noirs by its masculine, savory notes of leather, baking spices and notes of black truffle. Complex layers of earthy bramble, red stone fruits and black raspberry blend seamlessly with hints of mulling spices, orange rind and dried flower petals. The suave, sumptuous texture carries through restrained tannins and the plush finish. The extra years in our cellar had been worth the wait as this wine is beautifully integrated.

 

2013 Vireo Red Wine

One of our flagship wines, the 2013 Vireo is a refined blend of Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The classic combination of Merlot and Cabernet creates a rich and elegant structure. The Syrah layers deep, concentrated fruit flavors of plum, black berry and kirsch into the wine. An intense, supple mid-palate transitions into an evolving, spicy and jammy finish.

2012 Old Vine Zinfandel

This Zinfandel is a luscious, smooth, full-bodied wine with aromas of blackberry, bramble berry and Allspice. Deliciously mouth-filling, the wine opens up to sweet vanilla and toasty oak flavors, then follows with a concentrated core of well-balanced acidity, soft, but firm tannins and a lingering finish on the palate.

Food Pairing:

Concrete Old Vine Zinfandel is an excellent partner to spicy BBQ, zesty pasta and pizza, or juicy burgers.

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

This vintage has powerful yet harmonious fruit and oak balance. Classically structured with great lift, our 2013 Four Flags includes rich cassis, black cherries and pine nut nuances. Add savory ripe tannins, toasty oak, exotic spices of coriander and cardamom along with a smoky texture and you can see how complex and dynamic it is right now. Equally important, there are clues as to where this wine is headed as it develops over the next decade.

2013 D2

This exceptional vintage demonstrates classical, expressive Merlot notes of floral spices, sweet herbs, pencil shavings, tobacco pouch and mixed berries. There are rich, generous flavors filling the mouth with black cherries, raspberries and kirsch liquor as well as cocoa powder and toasty oak notes. The palate continues with savory qualities tempered by an elegance that has come to define DeLille Cellars. Complete all this with a dramatic finish to experience a memorable and youthful D2.

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

Focused aromas of blackberry, clove and dried rose arise from this dark concentrated wine, followed by mocha, black cassis and black tea aromas. Layered and dense, the palate seduces with baking spice, black fruit, black tea, and mocha. The palate is carried on a bed of fine grained tannin, and flavors of fruit, spice and mocha carry through the finish.

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

Ripe black fruit aromas pour from the glass followed by notes of spice, cocoa, black tea and hibiscus. The full bodied palate is dense with the flavors of cocoa, blackberry and brown sugar, carried on smooth tannins and supple texture. The flavors of tea, mocha and cherries carry through on the long finish.

Cherry Tart Chardonnay

Cherry Tart 2013 Chardonnay

Abundant floral and white fruit aromas jump from the glass; lychee nut, honeysuckle, and peach marmalade. Incredibly rich and textured, with loads of caramelized pear, pineapple and exotic marmalade notes, this sexy beast of a Chardonnay has brilliant delineation and stunning length along with undeniable minerality.

2013 Cherry Tart Pinot Noir

The 2013 Cherry Tart Pinot Noir jumps from the glass with aromas of raspberry, nutmeg, sandalwood and light smokiness, lifted by a floral note. Silky and delicate up front, with ripe acidity framing the rich, sweet flavors of red berries, red cherry and earth. Offers good fat without excess weight, finishing with a fine dusting of tannins and very good length.
