Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Red Table Wine 2007

Member Review by obeygeno:

Winemaker's comments The Quilceda Creek 2007 Columbia Valley Red Wine is a blend of declassified lots, which reflect the richness and complexity of this fabulous vintage. As with all of our wines, it represents a great quality to price ratio. This medium-bodied wine displays black cherry fruit, roasted herbs, marzipan, cocoa, smoke and minerals. Approachable now, this blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec will be best enjoyed over the next 15 years. Wine Advocate Review The 2007 Red Wine is composed of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, with the balance Cabernet Franc and Malbec. As always, it is a great value offering a fragrant, already complex nose of confiture of black fruits, incense, and Asian spices. On the palate it is savory and elegant with a plush texture. It is likely to evolve for several years but there is no compelling reason to defer gratification. Score: 93 Jay Miller, Wine Advocate, #190, August 2010 Wine Enthusiast Review You have to love the '07 vintage. This is drinking beautifully right now, though official release (September) is still a ways off. Rich and delicious, full-bodied and aromatic, with exotic barrel scents and a lovely mélange of chocolate, mocha, caramel and spice. But the fruit is the main story, and it's full, ripe and substantial-cherry and cassis, licorice and just a hint of leaf. Score: 93 Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast, (9/1/2010)
