"Slightly darker in color than the '12, the 2013 CVR Columbia Valley Red Wine has plenty of chocolaty dark fruits, licorice and classic Cabernet herb qualities to go with a full-bodied, sexy, seamless and hard-to-resist style on the palate. While it shows the more focused nature of the vintage, it has plenty of fruit and no shortage of tannin, so while billed as the entry-level cuvee, it will still have a decade of longevity."

"(this is the last Quilceda Creek wine to include a bit of Tapteil fruit; now all are made entirely from estate fruit): Deep red-ruby. Extremely ripe, liqueur-like aromas of plum and exotic flowers. Smooth, sweet and high-toned, with a flavor of raspberry liqueur accented by sage. In a rather southern style, finishing with building tannins. This wine is made from lots that did not make it into Quilceda Creek's flagship Cabernet, and it's clear to see where the slightly roasted fruit went."
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.
