International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 165

(cabernet sauvignon with 15% merlot, 2% cabernet franc and 1% petit verdot): Good deep ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of berries, chocolate and sexy spices; verging on exotic. Fat and sweet, with plenty of depth and a hint of surmaturite to the fruit and sandalwood flavors. Finishes with very suave, dusty, chocolatey tannins, a note of graphite and showy new oak. This very ripe, plump wine will offer plenty of early appeal.

Wine Advocate Author: David Schildknecht Issue: 204

Quilceda Creek's 2009 Red Wine - which includes 15% of Merlot and near-negligible amounts of Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc - nicely integrates preserved walnut, toasted pecan, and green herbal elements into a matrix of cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, and confitured dark berries. There is a hint of heat to the finish of this plush, plump offering, but neither that nor the wines torrefied elements detract from a torrent of sweet berry juiciness, nor preclude a sense of energy and a dynamic interaction of myriad elements. I suspect, based on intuition as well as reliable reports - although I have scarcely any personal experience as yet with older Quilceda Creek wines - that this will remain well worth following for at least a decade.

Wine Spectator Author: Harvey Steiman

Pure and impressively expressive, with focused currant, plum, blackberry and black olive aromatics turning on the palate to a more complex profile, weaving in coffee, crème brûlée and chai tea notes, all wrapped in a polished texture. The finish doesn't want to quit.

Very soft and round, with a "sweet" mouthfeel. A nice quaff, but didn't seem to have much complexity

Really good. Lots of currant and blackberry. The tannins are not overwhelming. This will age well but drinks pretty good now.
