This is the best of the best!
With an unbroken string of 98 to 100 point vintages, Robert Parker recently named Quilceda Creek "Washington State's Best Winery."
Why do we love this wine so much?
Quilceda Creek's Cabernet Sauvignon has an uncanny resemblance to left bank Bordeaux. When people drink this Columbia Valley king, you often hear descriptors such as: hedonistic, sensational, sumptuous and opulent.
A well-deserved reputation...
This wine and Bordeaux have more in common than just elegance, texture and harmony. Situated between 46 and 47°N in Columbia Valley, this region is along the same latitude as Bordeaux. No wonder Quilceda Creek can make pure Cabernet with such Bordelaise expression.
"Creme de cassis, graphite, black licorice, unsmoked tobacco, and hints of chocolate and emerge from this beauty and it continues to gain depth and nuance with time in the glass. Full-bodied, deep, and layered with an incredible purity and elegance on the palate, it's already accessible but has more than enough tannin, depth, and balance to evolve for two decades or more."
Sharpen your steak knives! Enjoy some Quilceda Cabernet now, but be sure to lay some down and watch it evolve with awe.
