Sweet Jesus and Mary Chain! I find it ironic that Quilceda Creek's cheapest wine is so freaking good! Big tannins but smooth as silk. Bold blackberry, cigar box, cherry and spice notes on initial palette that keep going and going and going (seriously, a fews mins later I am still smacking my lips). Drink this now until 2021. Yum!!! — a day ago
Interesting varietal, done in a very delicate way. Melon and cantaloupe flavors subtly mix on the initial pallet. The soft, thin body is deceiving because the tannic structure evolves noticeably after the swallow. Not my favorite wine (I favor the bold), but certainly interesting (more complex than the average pinot gris). — 3 months ago
Red mtn. all the way (i.e. huge fruit and a hint of banana), with softer tannins (thanks to aging perhaps) and a sweet lingering finish. Yum! — 4 months ago
2014 vintage is thick, mouth saturating and unctuous, intense raspberry and peppered meat, followed by subtle (or somewhat smothered) vanilla notes. Fantastic tannic grip as well. This is a bad ass Grenache, and sadly, we are not making more (we are blending it into our Squirrel Tooth Alice now). — a month ago
Rich, ripe fruit (cherry and plum), traces of smoke and an oaky finish speak volumes (i.e. It's a Cali wine yo). — 4 months ago
