Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, June 2016

Up there with the incredible 2012, yet in a more focused, tight, backwards style, the inky colored 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Four Flags comes from four separate vineyards (Klipsun, Grand Ciel, Ciel du Cheval and Upchurch) and exhibits classic Red Mountain characteristics of black fruit, smoked herbs, licorice, graphite and dusty minerality on the nose. Possessing serious intensity, full-bodied richness, ripe, yet present tannin and a fabulous finish, it needs to be forgotten for 4-5 years, and it will drink beautifully through 2038. - Jeb Dunnuck

(made with fruit from Grand Ciel, Ciel du Cheval, Upchurch and Klipsun vineyards; 70% new oak): Deep ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, licorice and crushed rock, plus a very ripe suggestion of plum brandy that winemaker Chris Upchurch says is from the Klipsun fruit. Wonderfully dense, fine-grained and broad, combining Latour-like saline, gravel and graphite notes with the vibrant blueberry and mineral aspect of Ciel du Cheval. Seriously structured, sharply focused, very pure wine with lovely floral lift and elegance. Finishes with sweet tannins and outstanding breadth. - Stephen Tanzer

Winery

Delille Cellars

DeLille Cellars is a boutique, artisan winery located in Woodinville, Washington. It was founded in 1992 by Charles and Greg Lill, Jay Soloff and celebrated winemaker Chris Upchurch. Wanting to create a new Bordeaux blend using Washington State vineyards, the winery has always looked to the prestigious Red Mountain AVA for the foundation of its wines, including grapes from its own vineyards other top sites in the Yakima Valley.

In 1992, DeLille Cellars pioneered its Chaleur Estate Rouge and D2, both blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. The winery was fortunate to acquire, in 1994, the rights to Harrison Hill vineyard, which is home to some of the oldest vines in Washington. Now, with vines over 50 years old, Harrison Hill has become one of the most sought after Bordeaux blends in the state.

In 1995, observing the Bordeaux tradition of blending varietals together, the winery chose to make a barrel fermented blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon for their first white wine, Chaleur Estate Blanc. Over the years, Chaleur Estate Blanc has demonstrated just how well a properly structured white wine can age.

Currently, the winery produces six Bordeaux-styled wines including Grand Ciel, Chaleur Estate Rouge, D2, Harrison Hill, Four Flags and Chaleur Estate Blanc. Also produced are the Doyenne wines which include classic northern Rhone Syrah (awarded by Robert Parker Jr. of Wine Advocate as one of the great 15 Syrahs of the world), a Roussanne, Metier (a Southern Rhone-style red wine), AIX (a Provence-style red wine) and a Bandol-style Rose.

Robert Parker Jr. of the Wine Advocate also rated DeLille Cellars and Doyenne as two of the top 12 Washington producers, bestowing the title of the “Lafite Rothschild” of Washington State. DeLille Cellars is the only Washington winery to receive recognition in the “Top 100 Wines” by both the Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast for two consecutive years
