This is an exemplary example of Mt. Veeder fruit delivering at optimum level at 21 years of age. A completely different wine than the excellent full throttle ‘13 I had last year...this is all about balance, lush inviting fruit, earth, saddle leather, rich fig and delicious Napa maturity. — 2 days ago
En mag and a really disappointing experience here. For me Quilceda needs 10 years at a minimum to start showing some secondary characteristics and exhibit what makes it unique. At age 13 this was a dorky adolescent. Very disjointed, heat, oak and a massive tannic unyielding monster. Not an indictment of the maker because I think these can be tremendous when they are at their best. Hold and hope. — 21 days ago
