2021 D2

The 2021 D2 shows the promise of the vintage, with deep concentration and outstanding quality. Initial aromas of blackberry, cassis and green peppercorn lead to a palate bursting with beautiful richness and texture. The high-quality, fine-grained tannins of this wine allow approachability in its youth, yet have the firmness and backbone to provide aging for 15+ years. Red currant, Bing Cherry and toasty oak flavors develop with time, leading to a lengthy finish with impressive weight. Cheers to 30 vintages of D2 and many more on the way. – N.B

A right-bank inspired blend of 58% merlot, 34% cabernet sauvignon, 4% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot, this is expressive on the nose, showing oregano, orange peel, sliced chilis, cocoa beans, black fruit and violets. It’s medium-bodied, polished and creamy, with beautifully integrated tannins. Drink or hold. – Eric Guido, Vinous

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.
