Issue: Issue 123
($35; a 70/20/10 blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernetfranc) Full, deep red. Roasted strawberry, plum and nutty oak; just this side of stewy. Lush and round in the mouth, with slightly roasted flavors of plum, minerals, nuts and smoke. Could use a bit more verve. Finishes with a slight tannic dryness.

The opaque, dark ruby-colored 2002 Red Wine (Quilceda Creek's "second label") reveals fresh blackberry and violet aromas. A 975-case blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc, it is medium-bodied, concentrated, and packed with tar-laced black fruits, currants, and tannin. A structured effort with an admirably long finish, this wine is a candidate for drinking between 2008 and 2018. Congratulations Alex and Paul, welcome to the big leagues.
