2008 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley

Sold cherry red with slightly translucent rim. Complex nose of black cherry, tobacco, bitter-sweet chocolate. Lush and deep on the palate, blackberry, black cherry, chocolate, cedar box, sweet tobacco. Bright cherry on the mid-palate. Smooth tannins, great acidity, fabulous balance. Finishes long, long and dark-fruited. Fabulous wine. Drink next 10 years, perhaps longer. "A+"
