Community Tasting Notes 209
January 20, 2015 - Wes drank this super fast which means he loves it. Very WA cab like. Nose of black licorice and flowers. Long palate that is even but also very large.
January 13, 2015 - Just as others have said, more time is needed to smooth out tannins and acidity. It kinda hits you in the face right now.
phantphant Does not like this wine: (75 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.
