The 2016 Quilceda Creek “Palengat” Proprietary Red Wine was sourced from Champoux, Palengat, Lake Wallula and Wallula Gap Vineyards, all of which are located in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA. Pristine black cherry, plum and cassis fruit are found in this seamless wine with nuances of tobacco, chocolate and Asian spice.
Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc
The 2016 Palengat is 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.
