DeLille Cellars

2022 Red Willow Malbec

Vineyard: Red Willow
AVA: Yakima Valley
Winemakers: Jason Gorski & Nick Bernstein
Alcohol %: 14.5
Release Date: November 2024

  • 100% Malbec
  • The Sauer family have always been pioneers, keen on exploring what varietals thrive in their sprawling
    vineyard. In 2000, their quest for experimenting and learning led them to plant Malbec in the highest
    section of their Marcoux block. DeLille began working with this same block in 2012, and quickly
    discovered its charm in the cellar, eventually bottling 200 cases of that first vintage for our Wine Club.
    Now, after ten years of refinement in the vineyard and cellar, we are preparing to bottle the 2022 Red
    Willow Malbec. This effort has notes of marionberry, red plum, and rose pedal on the nose. The
    mouthfeel has beautiful texture and weight, with hints of milk chocolate and tobacco leaf. Red Willow
    fruit always has firm structure, but this is most welcome in a varietal that can often lack it. This wine is
    lively, fresh, and will be easy to enjoy on its release.
    • Single block, planted in 2000
    • Extended macerated for 3 months, then rested in 50% New French oak for 18 months

FIGGINS

AVA: Walla Walla Valley
Winemaker: Chris Figgins
Alcohol %: 14.6
Release Date: Fall 2025

  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
  • The wine is a saturated, dark crimson color, boasting an exotic nose of black fruits, baking spices, coffee,
    caramel, and a hint of eucalyptus. Rich and plush with loads of fruit, framed by tannin that is abundant
    but full of finesse. Finishes long and supple as it lingers on the palate.
  • FIGGINS is nestled in the Blue Mountain foothills overlooking the Walla Walla Valley And is inspired by
    the success of the Figgins family's Leonetti Cellar varietal wines. Chris Figgins planted the site in 2004
    with the goal of cultivating single vineyard, Bordeaux-style wines of world class quality.
  • From the “Miracle Vintage of 2022” this Cabernet Sauvignon is made from the “Sunrise Block”. Berries
    from this block are small and intense, which is reflected in the wine. A few things make this wine
    unique, including that is grown at 1700' elevation, on a unique trellis system called Lyre, which despite
    its labor-intensive nature, doubles plant density per acre without increasing yields

2022 Greater Than Some Grenache Syrah Mourvèdre

Vineyard: Olsen Brothers Estate
AVA: Yakima Valley
Winemaker: Linn Scott
Alcohol %: 14.5
Release Date: May 2024

  • 33.334% Grenache, 33.333% Syrah, 33.333% Mourvèdre
  • Greater Than Some is loaded with rhubarb, strawberries, raspberries, Asian spices, vanilla and a
    beautiful tension that promises to evolve over time…a long, long time.
  • GSMs have been around since the ancient Australians of the 1980s (though the French and Spanish may
    have something to say about that), but we have never done one. Until now. Grenache is a crazy, multi-
    personality thing: Garnacha in Spain, Cannonau in Sardinia, a main component in Gigondas in the Rhône.
    Similarly, Syrah sings a local song, and in this blend its bass notes deepen and amplify the other
    varietals. Mourvèdre, new to our program in 2022, is its own beast, full of electricity and spice. Together
    they are much more than the sum of their individual selves.
  • Greater Than Some 2022 is the first blend of its kind produced by Sparkman Cellars, created exclusively
    for the Auction of Washington Wines Private Barrel Auction.
