Quilceda Creek 2001
Founded in 1978 by Alex Golitzin, Quilceda Creek is one of the oldest family-owned and operated wineries in Washington State. The Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is the premier offering and is considered one of the finest in the state. The 2001 was sourced mostly from the hallowed Champoux Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA and contains 3% Merlot. It is a wonderfully satisfying wine of incredible concentration, texture and precision. Waves of blackberry, cassis, anise, spice and grilled herbs cascade over the palate whilst ample tannin and bright acidity keep everything in check.
