Community Tasting Notes 10

    June 3, 2018 - Very clean cork extraction. Decanted off of moderate amount of fine and coarse sediment. Medium-red color with medium transparency. Currant and cherry aroma with black truffle and some vanilla notes. Initial taste shows tannic grip still there, but with a little air and some food, this dissipates. Palate is still relatively fresh but fully integrated and balanced with red fruit and earthy notes mixing. Finish is medium. This was a lovely bottle. Drink or hold.

    April 29, 2011 - Quilceda Creek Vertical (Zum Hirschen, Aarau, Switzerland): Still lots of cassis, and nice texture, but starting to fade. Some green notes, but still very interesting.

    September 19, 2010 - Strange cork, looked in great condition, but bore no markings of any kind. In the glass. this showed just the beginning signs of maturity. The nose was more mature, with violets, Asian spice, and forest floor. Very compact on the sweet-tart palate, with stemmy berries and a modestly unpleasant hamster-cage overtone, also juicy acidity. Shortish but not unpleasant finish. This could easily pass for a decent Right Bank Bordeaux near the end of its useful life. No reason to hold.

    February 12, 2010 - Quilceda Creek Vertical (Hughes House - Chicago IL): Double blind tasting of what turned out to be a 10 year Quilceda vertical, with this is added as by far the oldest wine in the lineup. Clearly mature nose of black fruit, leather and earth, with a bit of mint. Flavors are also clearly evolved but less interesting than the aromas. Moderate length.

    February 12, 2010 - Wineflock - Quilceda Creek Intro/Retro (Home): Group #7, My #8 - Deep opaque red with crrimson edges. Slightly canned round red/black fruit nose with prune and green pepper notes. Nice balanced round spicy red fruit with cola hints. Fully mature.
