2011 Quilceda Creek "Palengat Vineyard" Horse Heaven Hills Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1195162 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 61% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and the balance Petit Verdot, the 2011 Palengat Vineyard has a great bouquet of sweet plum liqueur, blackberry, graphite, lead pencil shavings and toast. This is followed by a full-bodied effort that has beautiful concentration (especially in the vintage), loads of texture and ripe underlying tannic structure. Reasonably approachable now, it will nevertheless evolve gracefully on its overall balance. (JD) Inner quote mark (6/2014)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full ruby-red. Dark, inviting aromas of blackcurrant, black raspberry and cocoa powder. Shows the lush, fine-grained texture of topnotch Merlot, not to mention the black fruit and dark chocolate notes of the variety, along with sexy floral lift from the Cabernet Franc. Seriously good, gripping wine with terrific density and chocolatey length. (ST) Inner quote mark (12/2014)
