Winemaker's Notes

The 2008 Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Red Wine is a blend of declassified lots from an extraordinary vintage. The resulting medium-bodied wine displays black cherry fruit, vanilla extract, roasted herbs, lead pencil and smoke. Approachable now, this blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec will best be enjoyed over the next 15 years.

Critical Acclaim

"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."
