95 points "This is the highest score ever given to a Delille wine from the Wine Advocate - it is truly a stellar bottling and a great value... "Lead pencil shavings and candied black fruits are found in the nose of the 2002 Chaleur Estate (red). An exceptional wine, it is medium to full-bodied, thick, hugely concentrated, and powerful. Its inky, tarry core of fruit displays waves of cassis and blackberry liqueur as well as copious quantities of ripe tannin. I’m convinced this effort will shut down soon before roaring back with a vengeance in a few years, when the tannin has melted into the fruit. Projected maturity: 2012-2025. 95+ POINTS." - Wine Advocate. $49.99/bottle "

92 points "92 Points, Wine Spectator Insider DeLille Cellars Chaleur Estate Red, Yakima Valley 2002 Another classy red from one of Washington’s mainstays. Firm, generous and tightly packed with ripe currant, blueberry and gentle spice flavors, lingering against chewy tannins on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2007 through 2015. H.S. June 1, 2005 "
