2018 Le Colosse - DeLille Cellars
Le Colosse is an homage to the unique foundational legacy and contribution Merlot has had on wine growing in Washington State. This inaugural 2018 vintage presents substantial aromas of cherry and ripe plum, with subtle cocoa powder and spearmint adding complexity. Lively and poised, red fruit flavors persist from the onset through a lengthy finish, with dark chocolate adding intrigue. Savory wood tannin and a creamy texture linger on the palate, assuring that additional bottle age will bring dividend.
