  • 2006 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon – USA, Washington, Columbia Valley (11/14/2020)
    WIML94

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over 90 minutes then re-corked and re-tasted 24 hours later.

    Purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of lilacs, currants, white pepper, plums and Kirsch. Flavors of currants, plums, boysenberries and black cherries. Medium acidity, firm to slightly drying tannin, full bodied. Drink now with air or continue to hold.

    Nose was showing beautifully at both tastings but the palate was a little tight at the first tasting and tasted better after 24 hours so be sure and decant some if opening now. (94 points)
