Quaking Hills 2005 Paden's Patch Red Blend, Alexander Valley
Quaking Hills is a small, family owned winery in the Alexander Valley. Their Hidden Spring Vineyard has proven to be an extremely prime spot for the noble Bordeaux varieties that they blend for this, their flagship wine, their best of the best. The 2007 Paden's Patch was our fastest selling wine of 2013 so of course we had to see if we could possibly get any more. What we came up with was this beautiful 2005. Production is tiny on this wine, in the low hundreds of cases. It's 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot and 6% Cabernet Franc. The wine was aged a full 48 months in French oak barrels. The nose is positively explosive with ripe berries, spices and floral perfume. Because it's been slowly aging in the winery cellar the palate is silky soft and shows really complex layers of flavor from black cherries and black currants to cocoa, roasted coffee, black truffles and woodsmoke. Drinking at an incredible peak of perfection because all of the cellaring has been done for you. And luckily for a short period of time we can offer this beautifully aged red at a remarkable sale price. But it's limited so don't wait. As we said the 2007 was our fastest selling wine of the year!! You won't want to miss this. We tasted a vertical of Quaking Hills Paden's Patch, in our Google Hangout!

    Comments about Quaking Hills 2005 Paden's Patch Red Blend, Alexander Valley:

    My favorite American wines come from Alexander Valley, so it was exciting to find a Bordeaux-style blend from there of this quality. I've only had one bottle so far and that on a weeknight, but I'll reserve the rest, like I do with the Silver Oak Alexander wines in my collection, for very special occasions.

    • Beef, Cheese, Chocolate, Poultry, Quiche

      Comments about Quaking Hills 2005 Paden's Patch Red Blend, Alexander Valley:

      I am a "value buyer". We should all be, to keep the price of that most awesome wine well under $70. This wine is tasty, but holds few of the chips that slightly higher-priced wines do for depth and character ("value buyer" here, remember?).
