2012 Quilceda Creek Palengat Vineyard Proprietary Red Blend | Horse Heaven Hills Washington 750ml



The 2012 Quilceda Creek Palengat Proprietary Red Wine was sourced from Palengat, Champoux, Wallula and Tapteil vineyards which are located throughout the Columbia Valley AVA. This intense Merlot-based wine displays plum, blackberry and fig fruit with nuances of lavender, leather and charcuterie. Aged in 100% new French Oak for 20 months, it is a blend of 59% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Paul Golitzin, Director of Winemaking at Quilceda Creek

...a small production wine sourced from an 8 acre vineyard that Alex Golitzin and John Ware bought a few years back. The wine itself...offers gorgeous aromas of ripe red cherries, crème de cassis and mocha with a savory edge that includes notes of anise, black olive, and dried herbs. The mouthfeel is thick, layered and viscous supported by a gorgeous layer of underlying acidity which provides excellent lift into soft tannins and a long lingering finish... International Wine Report, 96 points

...Inviting aromas of blackcurrant, black raspberry, plum, Belgian chocolate and graphite minerality. Plump, round, and mouthfilling; seriously dense and silky, showing enticing lift to the flavors of dark berries, licorice, graphite, lavender and cocoa powder. Finishes very long and vibrant, with big but fine-grained tannins and a repeating note of cocoa powder. Stephen Tanzer for Vinous, 93 points

...offers a deep, decadent style to go with the classic blackberry liqueur, blueberry, graphite, toasted spices and licorice. A big, beefy, layered and full-bodied effort, it has building tannin, a supple mid-palate and terrific length. It should evolve nicely for 2-4 years and hold for a decade or more after that.
