We often say that the best wines are greater than the sum of their parts, and it just so happens that this is the guiding principle behind the success of DeLille Cellars' founders Chris Upchurch, Jay A. Soloff, Greg Lill, and his father, Charles Lill. Their French-inspired wines transcend their genre, thanks to their combined ability to guide the winemaking process so that the terroir can do what it does best: coax the very best out of the grapes grown in its soil and bring forth wines that beautifully express that synergy.
DeLille Cellars has solidified its reputation as one of the Columbia Valley's most cherished wineries. It has vineyard holdings in the valley's most prestigious appellations, including Red Mountain, Yakima Valley, and Horse Heaven Hills. This diversity gives the team the ability to plant varietals in sites where they will reach their highest expression, and it shows in today's stunning offer.
The 2021 Métier Red Blend is crafted from 55% syrah, 32% cabernet sauvignon, and 13% merlot sourced from vineyards throughout the Columbia Valley. Aged in 92% seasoned and 8% new French oak, it is bold and plush, with generous fruit aromas of blueberries and black cherries. Rich fruit flavors and lush structure combine on the palate with undeniable appeal. Fruit-forward and accessible, lively and full of delicious fruit flavors, this pleasurable, charming wine should offer satisfaction to a wide audience. (winery notes)

91 points, Jeb Dunnuck:
"Based on syrah, cabernet sauvignon, and merlot, the 2021 Métier Red Blend is a consistently outstanding wine and has upfront blackberry-like fruits, complex notes of peppery herb, leather, and earth, medium to full body, ripe tannins, and outstanding length." (6/14/23)
