2014 Quilceda Creek CVR® Red Wine
Paul Golitzin, Director of Winemaking, comments:
The 2014 Quilceda Creek "CVR" Columbia Valley Red Wine is a wonderful preview into the incredible 2015 vintage. A combination of all our vineyard sites, it is filled with satisfying red and blue fruits, smoke, spice and minerals. One of the best CVRs to date, it is the first vintage of CVR that will bear the new label showing an iridescent black version of the classic gold Quilceda Creek label. This blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot will be best enjoyed over the next 15 years.
76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec
Champoux, Galitzine, Palengat, and Wallula Vineyards
100% French Oak
Wine Advocate Review
"One of the finest examples of this cuvee to date, the opulent, sumptuous and downright sexy 2014 CVR Columbia Valley Red Wine gives up
loads of black currants, kirsch, licorice, toasted spice and dried herb aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, gorgeously textured, round,
and just about as hedonistic as it gets, yet without being over the top or heavy in the least, drink it anytime over the coming decade."
