Delicious and fruit intense. Would have guessed Marcassin if blind. Lovely wine. Dark red color, intense dark cherry flavors. Lovely legs and finish. True delight.

A great surprise. Still pale yellow coloring. No deterioration. Wonderful fruit. Lovely wine for this price point. Compares nicely with Staglin, Peter Michael and others at 2-3 the cost. Sorry it is my last bottle. Good tartness, lemon and honeysuckle notes.

Just an outstanding offering. Crisp, clean, complex. Floral notes mixed with honey, and slight notes of ginger. Enjoyed every bit as it evolved over a two hour leisurely tasting.

Still nice fruit and nose for such an advanced age. Not as good as Flax or Vista Verde from same vintage but being eminently drinkable for 14 years old is great.

Amazing fruit, length and legs for 14 years old pinot. Delightful from start to finish. Plenty of red fruit. I would have guessed 2013/14.

Just wonderful. Minerality, fruit, taste, texture length. Tart, lemon evolving to peach and honeysuckle. Maybe my favorite of the Aubert 2017s.

While the color has bricked a little this opened over an hour into a sweet, velvety bright red fruit delight. After a glass before dinner held its own against a steak. Lovely 18 year old burgundy.

Big, dark, brooding 18 year old cab. Lovely nose, legs, mouthfeel. Dark looking but to me more red than black berries. Quilceda Creek never disappoints. Only disappointment is that I have only one bottle left of this vintage.

Sharp red fruit. Still young. Lovely depth and concentration. Drank during virtual tasting with N&N young winemaker Joe Harden. Great experience which added to the enjoyment.

Lovely legs and finish. Bright fruit. Red raspberry and cherry. Some chocolate notes but red is the dominant taste and feel. Should age nicely over next 5-7 years.

Lost some fruit but still dark fruit and good finish. A little bricking but beautiful nose and remarkable legs for a 24 year old wine. Fabulous QPR.

Lovely. Honeysuckle, lemon, slight tang. Recognizable as a Peter Michael Chardonnay immediately.

Lovely. Dark, brooding full-bodied. Lots of fruit remains. Good texture. Tobacco and spice box notes. Just a really fine wine. Delighted I have two left.

Lovely nose. Dark raspberry and cherry notes. Has a little tang to it that will probably mellow out with age. Still a relative baby.

Dramatically better than last tasting note. Losing its steam but still nice nose, cedar box and some legitimate leather notes. Bricking around the edges but definitely remembrances of a nice wine.

Great fruit, red and dark berries. Full flavor. Very nice finish. Drank over two days. Just as good if not better. Tastes like much higher price point cali cabs.

Pleasant surprise. Good nose, good legs, still decent color. Definite cherry and red fruit taste. Thinner than earlier sampling. Would drink up - duh, at 18 years I would assume so.

Pleasant surprise. Lots of fruit. Good legs and nose. Expiration date way too pessimistic. While a little brown, clearly still a fine zin.

Totally agree with prior note by JPBACH136. Expected wine to be cooked or at least fruitless. Still had good color, great fruit, pepper and blackberry overtones. Very pleasant surprise. Glad I have 3 bottles remaining, Stunning wine for the original price point and age.

Very pleasant surprise. Fruit has diminished but still present. Legs and nose good. Lasted three hours and retained vibrancy. Great for price and age although sure no one has any left except me.
