Paul Golitzin, Director of Winemaking, comments:

The 2015 Quilceda Creek “Palengat” Proprietary Red Wine was sourced from Champoux, Palengat, Lake Wallula and Wallula Gap vineyards which are located in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA. It has amazing precision and a fabulous, silky texture allowing for the highly perfumed aromatics to display ripe plum and blueberry fruit with accents of anise, violets, cedar, ginger and minerals. Aged for 20 months in 100% new French oak, it is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Drink now – 2038.

Jeb Dunnuck Review

"The 2015 Palengat is a Cabernet Sauvignon-heavy blend that includes 13% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. This gorgeous red offers a deep, rich, opulent style in its blackcurrants, baking spice, tobacco leaf, and graphite aromas and flavors. Possessing beautiful purity, ultra-fine tannin, a big, rich, concentrated style that somehow stays light and graceful, it's a sensational, elegant wine that will keep for 15-20 years."
Score: 97 Pts.
