    July 16, 2019 - What a disappointment. Not defective or corked, but something is very wrong here. Cork was soft. Wine is terribly disjointed. Alcoholic, fruit is very green and overly herbal. On the plus side, the nose is terrific. But that’s not much consolation. Not drinkable. Bought on release off the mailing list. Held in pristine conditions for over a decade, and, crap.

    July 5, 2019 - Pop and poor, out of sommelier stems. Muted nose of dark cherry, crushed stone, mature wood and leather. From a standard stem there was a bit of fine-grained 10 and coding a palate, but this time the wine seemed a little more refined from the sommeliers.

    Red cherry, maybe faint strawberry and just enough structure and dustiness to provide for a lingering finish. I’ve got one more bottle and if not consume shortly it will probably be best out of a smaller stem just for Concentration.

    Overall excellent, and well paired with tonight’s fillet and a chestnut wine sauce.

    July 3, 2019 - Needs to breathe and benefits tremendously from pairing with food/ribeye. A little disjointed on opening. Becomes a full bodied fruit forward wine that melds with food. Smooth, pleasant finish.

    June 30, 2019 - Wonderful. Had served at a local restaurant on a warn June day. Power decanted for 15 minutes and poured. Nice red fruits on the nose, raspberries and cherries. Also tasted of red fruit. Paired with filet mignon. The first glass wasn't fully opened and had a little bitterness which was gone by the second. Smooth drinking and everyone at the table enjoyed it. This is drinking very well now, most of the tannins are gone. Enjoy it.

    June 28, 2019 - Delicious Cab. Needs a few hours of air to be at its best. Concentrated with lots of fruit and tar. Drink or hold.

Washington Wine Report

    (Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley) A stunningly beautiful, refined nose with blackberry, blueberry, earth, mineral, wood smoke, and light herbs. The taste is other worldly. Perfectly refined. Immaculated detailed and textured. Hangs on the palate for minutes. Quite simply the best wine I have tasted. 96% Cabernet; 3% Merlot; 1% Cab Franc. Champoux, Tapteil, and Klipsun vineyards. 14.4% alcohol. 3,400 cases produced. Sampled at 62 degrees.
