The 2013 Quilceda Creek CVR Columbia Valley Red Wine is a blend of declassified lots that did not make it into our flagship wines. Having this strict selection allows our best wines to compete at the highest level on a global scale. The resulting wine is filled with red fruits, smoke, spice and minerals. This blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec will best be enjoyed over the next 15 years.

Vinous(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.
