2000 Quilceda Creek CVR Columbia Valley Red Wine

2000 Quilceda Creek Red Table Wine

Paul Golitzin, Director of Winemaking, comments:

The 2000 Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Red is made from fruit and barrels declassified from our top offerings. It is a rich, medium-bodied wine full of black cherries, marzipan, smoke and spices.

Demonstrating nice balance, this wine represents an excellent value and should be enjoyed now or over the next 10 years.

International Wine Cellar Review

"Good red-ruby. Complex nose combines black raspberry, graphite, a cedar and smoky, spicy oak. Supple and juicy, with slightly dry berry and oak flavors. Could use a bit more vibrancy. Finishes with firm-edged tannins and good length."
Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar
