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.

May 28, 2016 - Not a great showing...cork would not budge and we had to push through and filter. A bit of fruit on the front end, but nothing special after that and the finish was short.

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.

(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.
