DeLILLE CELLARS, Grand Ciel & Doyenne, DeLILLE CELLARS 2008 Harrison HIll

The slightly cooler temperatures of Harrison Hill in the 2008 vintage allowed the trademark nose of black cherries to be even more pronounced than prior vintages. Bright cherries, raspberries and red currants enhanced by tobacco and leather along with heaps of fresh herbs are the signature characteristics of this unique and historic vineyard. The palate is extremely supple and silky, showcasing purity of red and black fruits, cigar box, and pencil lead. Since Harrison Hill shines best in slightly cooler vintages such as 2008 and this year’s wine is undeniable proof.
