    August 25, 2015 - Plush black fruit, spice and a hint of chocolate, beautifully balanced and smooth.

    August 20, 2015 - Finally figuring out that I need to wait and wait on these Quilceda reds. Has really matured into a fine wine offering still fresh but mellowed out notes of cassis, a little licorice. The heat is better integrated as well but still noticeable. Best Quilceda Red Wine I've opened yet as the others were simply too soon.

    April 22, 2015 - Phenomenal QPR, drinking very well right now. It's in a great place.

    April 18, 2015 - Last tasted a little less than 3 years ago.

    Color still very dark ruby -> medium ruby rim. Bouquet of cassis, minerals, chocolate and a whole pile of ash. Palate showed good fruit concentration but still a lot of chalky tannins. Still needs time--at least 2+ years more (that echoes what I said nearly 3 years ago). Volcanic ash, minerals, sour cherries and iodine blasting through the tannin cloak. Good acidity. Definitely more austere than its Cali cabernet counterparts. Great price but will it bring pleasure? Only time will tell . . . .

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.
