Quilceda Creek CVR Red 2013
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
Always a terrific value, the 2013 Cvr Columbia Valley Red Wine is a medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy 2013 that has tons of plums, licorice, lead pencil shavings and spice to go with a rounded texture, ripe tannin and a great finish. Drink it over the coming decade.
(this is the last Quilceda Creek wine to include a bit of Tapteil fruit; now all are made entirely from estate fruit): Deep red-ruby. Extremely ripe, liqueur-like aromas of plum and exotic flowers. Smooth, sweet and high-toned, with a flavor of raspberry liqueur accented by sage. In a rather southern style, finishing with building tannins. This wine is made from lots that did not make it into Quilceda Creek's flagship Cabernet, and it's clear to see where the slightly roasted fruit went.
