Quilceda Creek Vintners Quilceda Creek-Cabernet Sauvignon Palengat Vineyard 2006

Member Review by Terence Pang:

Intense purple ruby colour, initially (despite 4 hours of in-bottle breathing) very closed nose and I thought this might have been a compromised bottle. At times, I would be teased by hints of exciting florals but what resided in the glass was a dull and uninspiring spirit. However, overnight, youthful aromas of blackberries, violets and bramble started emerging. Silky texture, dry, full-bodied with high acidity. The forward, even tannins provide robust structure to this powerful fruit-driven wine. rich blackberry flavours with dark cherry and bitter earthy chocolate linger in the mouth. Long finish. 15.2% alc. Drink 2016 – 2025+. 93-94/100.
