Quilceda Creek Red Bordeaux Blend Columbia Valley 2005

External Review by Shop Wine Direct:

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 93The 2005 Red Wine is the winerys second label for declassified lots. It consists of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 7% Merlot. Purple-colored, it reveals an expressive bouquet of cedar, pencil lead, spice box, black currant, and blackberry. This is followed by a full-bodied, plush wine with ample ripe tannins and layers of sweet fruit. The wine has serious weight, excellent length, and will profit from several years of additional cellaring. It should be at its best from 2011 through 2020. The wine is true to the house style and is a superb value.Wine Tasting NotesThe Columbia Valley Red Wine is an excellent Bordeaux blend. This wine reflects the richness and complexity of the vintage and ranks as one of our favorite Red Wine offerings to date. Aged in predominantly new French oak for 22 months, this medium bodied wine displays black cherry fruit, anise, marzipan, dried herbs and minerals. Approachable now, it will be best enjoyed over the next 15 years.
