Métier 2021 Red Blend

Wine of the Week


August 17, 2023

Longtime Washington wine drinkers surely know DeLille Cellars, one of the first and still one of the foremost small brands to make Woodinville its home. Now entering its fourth decade, DeLille has grown and those in charge have changed, but the quality remains. Métier began as a single wine under the DeLille label but has transformed into a sister label all its own. There are three wines currently on offer. This red is my favorite – a classic Washington blend of 55% Syrah, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot. Black fruits, toast and espresso flavors jump out, backed with impressively ripe and soft tannins. Broad across the palate, its blackberry fruit is highlighted with accents of tanned leather, sandalwood and white pepper. It falls away gently with a savory trail of herbs. 14.4%; $25; (Columbia Valley) 91/100
