2012 Quilceda Creek CVR Red Wine Columbia Valley
(94 Points) "The 'CVR' is Quliceda Creek's entry level wine which is made from fruit that didn't quite make the grade for their flagship Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The blend for the 'CVR' changes each year, with the 2012 being composed of 91% Cabernet, 7% Merlot and 3% Cab Franc. This is very expressive with ripe and complex aromas of cassis, mocha, black olive and cedar notes, which all come together beautifully. This possesses a rich and dense palate that persists with notes of anise, crème de cassis, black olive and blackberry ending with impressive minerality and wonderful length. Overall, a rich and refined wine that's open but can also benefit from many years in the cellar. (Best 2015-2025)"International Wine Report, July 2015

Paul Golitzin, Director of Winemaking, comments:
The 2012 Quilceda Creek CVR Columbia Valley Red Wine is a blend of declassified lots that didn't 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 and black fruits, bittersweet chocolate, graphite and leather will best be enjoyed over the next 15 years.
