October 9, 2014 - Nice dark fruit on the nose with a velvety mouthfeel that gets better the longer the wine sits in the glass. Very nice.

October 7, 2014 - Spice, meat, and dark fruit fill the nose. Richly textured with a mouth coating viscosity and softness. Dark fruit mingled with leather, cola and spice lead in to a finish with fine, persistent tannins and good acidity.

September 11, 2014 - Tasted blind, I thought initially on a pop and pour that this was a Grenache, however once opened I picked up on the Merlot very easily, however the Cabernet hides in this wine, even though it is the major varietal... It's very good, extracted yet balanced, for the price it's hard to beat.

(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.
