2014 D2 6L

The 2014 D2 has a notable dark ruby color with magenta edges.  There is a proliferation of red and black fruits on the nose and palate, including blackberries, cranberries, raspberries, pomegranates, black cherries and marionberries. Wrapped around these fruit characters is a presence of mint chocolate, black olive, cedar, toasty oak and vanilla.  With bright acidity and good structure, this wine is extremely well built and offers a dollop of red fruit flavors in its lengthy finish.

The Merlot-dominated 2014 D2 Proprietary Red Wine is a fleshy, ripe, yet also elegant wine that offers lots of juicy blackberry and black raspberry fruits, black plums, and crushed flower aromas and flavors. Supple, upfront and balanced, it’s a perfect introduction to the Bordeaux varieties from this estate.

Butternut Squash Risotto with Black Truffles

This is a very cool dish because it is vegetarian, yet the cheese and truffles bump it up to a red wine pairing. It is perfect with the DeLille Cellars Merlot-dominant D2. For the carnivorous, add a short rib on top. Vegetarian or not, everyone is happy. Do not fear the truffle. As with many things, they are available on the internet for most of year.
