    May 23, 2016 - Tasty blackberry, plum and cassis notes on the nose and palate with oak and refreshing tannins on the moderate finish.

    April 15, 2016 - I preferred this wine a little younger. I thought the wine tasted a little syrupy and extracted. I would say this wine has started its descent, and I would drink it if you have it.

    March 15, 2016 - Followed over 2 nights hooked up to nitro. After 3 hours of air (uneducated) there's modest leather, dark plum, faint black pepper and vanilla on the nose. Coats the palate with a dusty satin, fruits are fading. Fruit was more prominent on night 1, I'd take this as a pop and pour, drink by 2018. While I don't find this to by syrupy, I do see resemblence to a some 13 YO Godolphin syrah I had 2 weeks ago.

    March 9, 2016 - Brought to CT SEA first-second tasting. I also opened this around 9 am and double decanted around 3 PM - then it had the classic black fruit, leather, spice, and tannins I think of with this wine - but by the time of the tasting at 6:30 there was not much left. Disappointed me.

    November 29, 2015 - No decant but I consumed this over about 3 hours. There is some nice rich cassis, tobacco, earth and graphite. But it is rather sweet, syrupy and boozy. To me, this drinks more like a goopy syrah than a Bordeaux blend. Drinking it at a lower temperature seems to help. I believe this is a well-made wine, and I'm trying to be objective, but I am probably not succeeding. This is a style of wine that I do not prefer.

Washington Wine Report

    4/1/2010 (link) ***** points

    (Quilceda Creek Red Wine Columbia Valley) Dark to the point of being opaque. A pretty nose with licorice, oak spices, blackberry, red fruit, and light floral notes. On the taste, an opulent, rich, outrageously textured wine with gobs of black fruit, chocolate, and spice. Very tightly compact on the palate at present. Shows a little heat at times. Give two to three years. 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec. 15.2% alcohol. To be released in Fall 2010.
