"Palengat" Horse Heaven Hills

2014

The 2014 Quilceda Creek Palengat Proprietary Red Wine was sourced from Champoux, Palengat, Lake Wallula and Wallula Vineyards which are located in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA. This highly expressive blend has violet infused plum and crème de cassis fruit that coats the entire palate with accents of five spice powder, black truffles, vanilla and minerals. Aged for 21 months in new French oak, it is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc.

"...mostly Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 11% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc, and it’s one of the smaller production cuvees. It’s a rich, full-bodied effort and has wonderful purity in its crème de cassis, graphite, and ample pencil lead like nuances, with an almost Pauillac vibe. With fine, sweet tannins, a great mid-palate, and considerable elegance and finesse matched up to classic Quilceda power and richness, it’s a beautiful wine to drink over the coming 15-20 years."
