    March 22, 2019 - This is definitely a little bit of a departure from other Cabernets that were enjoyed tonight. Still extremely elegant. Enjoyed En Magnum. This is 15 years of Columbia Valley excellence. The news on this wine was clove, truffle, black cherry. The entry had a little bit of a bleu cheese, green grapestem, black cherry, fig. The middle is where this one started to settle more to a red and black fruit profile.... but mostly favored the black fruit side of things. Finishes with a little bit of black pepper, with softened tannins that carried it through to the finish. If in 750, I would say it is definitely time to start popping and enjoying these. If it is in Magnum, this is actually a rather enjoyable wine and I feel it will likely develop a bit more.

    January 1, 2018 - Cassis and dark cherry flavors. Balanced and lasting flavor.

    October 1, 2017 - Needed at least an hour to pull together, was better the next day. Black cherry, blackberry, herbs, and earth on the nose. Black cherry, red cherry, alcohol spice, aged wood, and earth on the palate. Rather primary still. Some annoying heat. Fair acidity, integrated tannins, good finish. Interestingly, I had some left in the fridge for a few weeks, and it was better, with more earth, some herbs, hints of leather, and so on. So, this might still be fun to follow, but I would probably still drink these up.

    May 3, 2017 - Pop and pour, hooked up to nitro canister. Nose is distinctive Bordeaux, add in some barnyard and acetone. First time I've thought this about a QC Red. Comes off a bit thin, more a Pinot than red blend. Cherry, hint of cola, brief finish. Will drink the balance of this bottle with fish or pork; if this were a Pinot I'd rate it 95+. As a cab-based blend, its past its prime

    February 10, 2017 - Popped and poured...some bricking and better than decent for a 12/13 year old wine, but not much going on...time to drink up.

Washington Wine Report

  • By Sean Sullivan
    4/21/2009 (link) ***** points

    (Quilceda Creek Red Wine Columbia Valley) Very dark in color. A rich, opulent nose with toasted oak aromas and dark syrupy fruit. As the wine opens, earth, violets, lavendar, blueberry, and blackberry emerge. A gauzy, rich taste that effortlessly hangs on and on. Son of the best wine I have tasted. For the price a simply outrageous wine. 81% Cabernet; 13% Cab Franc; 6% Merlot. Champoux, Ciel du Cheval, Galitzine, Klipsun, and Tapteil vineyards. 14.9% alcohol. 2,100 cases produced.
