    May 19, 2017 - After 30 minutes in the decanter it really opened up. Nose has strong fresh and dark fruits with some oak. Tannins are well integrated with velvety texture. The fruit is strong on the attack with cassis an plums. The mid palette shows wonderful balance of acidity. The finish while pleasant isn't extraordinary (and hence the <98 score). Still, this is an incredible wine and its drinking beautifully right now.

    April 30, 2017 - This has great fruit. More impactful, however is the structure and balance. The high alcohol of my earlier tastings has given way to a seamless, integrated experience that lasts on the palate for several minutes. The nose is vibrant and penetrating. This is a red fruit cab with cranberry and red current followed by nutmeg, cedar and saddle leather. One of the better QC Cab vintages.

    April 8, 2017 - Much, much better than my prior botttle, this 2005 Quilceda was vibrant, with red and black currant fruit supported by well integrated oak and a hint of toffee on the finish.

    April 1, 2017 - 14.9% alcohol. A very masculine and opulent wine - Full bodied, ripe, rich, deep, layered, long, and powerful with an aromatic and flavor signature of blackberries, creme de cassis, melted black licorice, oak, and a hint of mint/menthol.
