2013 Quilceda Creek CVR Columbia Valley Red Wine

2013 Quilceda Creek CVR® Columbia Valley Red Wine

Paul Golitzin, Director of Winemaking, comments:

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.

Wine Advocate Review

"Always a terrific value, the 2013 CVR Columbia Valley Red Wine is a medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy 2013 that has tons of plums, licorice, lead pencil shavings and spice to go with a rounded texture, ripe tannin and a great finish. Drink it over the coming decade."
