    November 7, 2021 - Finally in a good place. Been drinking one bottle per year since release, waiting for the tannic edge to dissipate. Big fruit profile, oak has faded, really softened up with age.

    March 5, 2021 - Not sure of the QPR being great but this wine was smooth as silk and disappeared fast.
    Decanted for 2 hours prior to drinking.
    No hint of the 15.2% ABV. Nicely integrated.
    Everything was in it's place and the wine was well made.
    I will say there wasn't alot of complexity. It was a very silky smooth, one note wonder. The one note was a darn good note though.

    Would buy again.

    January 20, 2021 - Really delicious, drinking beautifully, smooth and velvety with long finish. Unfortunately last bottle of the 2008, can't wait to try to Cab.

    November 12, 2020 - Purchased direct from winery. Decanted & poured back into bottle after 15 minutes. Heat on the nose reflecting alcohol from the warmer vintage. Palate of sweet fruit with fully resolved & smooth tannins. The oak that normally is off putting with this wine in its youth is fully integrated. Good balance despite a more brooding profile. Nice 2nd label by QC!

Washington Wine Report

  • By Sean Sullivan
    3/23/2011 (link) **** 1/2 points

    (Quilceda Creek Red Wine Columbia Valley) Abundant aromas of oak spice, blackberry, chocolate, cherries, and licorice on an appealing, classically Quilceda Creek aroma profile. The palate is rich and silky with the tannins slightly less assertive than in recent vintages. Dips slightly in the middle but picks back up and sails on to an extended finish. 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Malbec. 15.2% alcohol. Sampled at 68 degrees.
