    February 10, 2021 - Smooth and silky. Red fruit, pepper, some spices. Easy drinking.

    January 21, 2021 - Clearly in a peak window showing its CndP heritage - nice blend with floral and minty aromas with a palate of black raspberry and cassis, thyme, anise, and smoky earthiness on a soft if somewhat short finish. Solid value for library selection at $25 via WL's winetext.

    January 12, 2021 - 2010 Rasa QED red- no decant. Actually impressive nose of perfume, assortment of flowers. Palate is..... not there. Not sure I have a better description. No finish. Tastes diluted. The nose was so good, it actually prepares your palate for something more robust. Thus making the actual palate such a let down. I have to agree with others who have commented on this wine likely passing it’s prime. 6/10

    December 13, 2020 - Honestly a bit underwhelmed. Feels a bit past prime — soft and a bit unstructured, definitely beginning to verge on oxidized as far as flavors and aromas go. This has been impeccably cellared since purchase, but just hasn’t held up. I have another bottle left, so we will see if this was just some bottle variation.

    October 30, 2020 - Absolutely singing on day one in terms of being polished. The tannins are resolved, tertiary notes are just beginning and yet the dark fruits are still at the fore.
    Big and round with enough acid that days one and two have composure.
    Drink now.

Washington Wine Report

  • By Sean Sullivan
    12/5/2013 (link) ***** points

    (Rasa Vineyards QED Red Wine Columbia Valley) An aromatic tour de force with blueberry, garrigue, white pepper, crushed violets, smoked meat, chocolate, and earth. The palate shows great elegance and deftness with vivid, crystalline clarity, moving along gracefully to a long, extended finish. Perhaps the best QED yet. 79% Syrah (Les Collines, Seven Hills, Bacchus), 9% Mourvèdre (Monette’s Vineyard, Alder Ridge), 8% Grenache (Monette’s Vineyard), and 4% Viognier (Les Collines). Aged 24 months in French oak (20% new). 14.9% alcohol. 549 cases produced.
