November 19, 2016 - Pop and pour, followed over 90 mins without decanting. Herbs and faint fruit on the nose; Medium-light weight, modest tannins offer a dry and polished finished, but this is fruit-driven wine at/slightly past the peak of its life. Based on tonite's tasting, will drink during the course of '17.

September 3, 2016 - Absolutely delicious. Rich and smooth, lush dark fruit flavors, spice and a hint of earth. Long finish.

July 20, 2016 - P&P. Really nice wine, well integrated with nothing too sharp or pronounced. Cassis and boysenberry fruit, tobacco, and vanilla flavors. This has several years of prime drinking left. Drink now - 2018+.

May 30, 2016 - Full bodied wine. A bit of a pop and pour. Excellent QPR and great "every day" wine.

(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.
