The Quilceda Creek lineup begins with the 2008 Red Wine made up of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, with the balance Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Aromas of cedar, spice box, mineral, incense, black currant, and blackberry inform the nose of a ripe, savory, smooth-textured wine. In the glass it displays more minerality, excellent volume, and enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years. Enjoy this first-class effort now through 2020. (JSM)
(a Bordeaux blend based on 81% cabernet sauvignon): Good full red-ruby. Slightly sweaty, liqueur-like nose suggests very ripe dark berries. Then plump, broad and sweet in the mouth, with plenty of texture and depth to its cassis, cocoa and graphite flavors. Fresher than the nose suggests, and the tannins are sweet. An excellent vintage for this bottling. (ST)
Soft and lush when first opened, with a fragrant mix of oak and berry, this is broad in the mouth, oaky and liquorous... to find any Quilceda at such a modest price must be considered a gift from the wine gods. (PG)
