    September 8, 2017 - Popped and poured, youthful ruby/purple, quite deep. Pronounced aromas immediately off the pop of blackberry, black raspberry, cassis, black currant, lifted florals (incense?), vanilla bean, red clay and a touch of herbaceous root vegetable earth-funk...hello nurse! Medium body. On the palate, this tastes like a Cab blend that's just entering into secondary development, with dark, plummy fruits complimented by flavors of mint leaf, tobacco and earthy autumnal vegetation tinged with spice from oak. The tannins are chewy and somewhat astringent on the moderate-plus close that climaxes with a touch of heat (as do most QCs, seemingly). Although this will hold for many years, it might be best to drink now while the flavors are still so pronounced and have yet to be obscured by tannins and alcohol.

    August 18, 2017 - Very tight right out of the bottle- no idea this is a 10-year-old wine- needed minimum 90 minutes in the decanter to open up and soften.

    After decanting: Cigar/tobacco on the nose, medium to medium light weight, dark red fruits, more tobacco, black cherry, pepper, maybe some blackberry. In spite of the lightweight, finish last 20+ seconds. Great wine, might drink within a 2 to 3 our window in the future.

Washington Wine Report

  • By Sean Sullivan
    4/1/2010 (link) ***** points

    (Quilceda Creek Red Wine Columbia Valley) Dark to the point of being opaque. A pretty nose with licorice, oak spices, blackberry, red fruit, and light floral notes. On the taste, an opulent, rich, outrageously textured wine with gobs of black fruit, chocolate, and spice. Very tightly compact on the palate at present. Shows a little heat at times. Give two to three years. 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec. 15.2% alcohol. To be released in Fall 2010.
