Quilceda Creek 2006
Quilceda Creek is one of the oldest family-owned and operated wineries in Washington State having been established by Alex Golitzin in 1978. The Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is their premier offering and is considered one of the finest in the state. The 2006 is a superb release redolent of warm blackcurrants, violet flowers, griddled herbs, woodsmoke, scorched earth and tobacco. Imbued with gloriously ripe, textural tannins and seamless balance, this still has youthful appeal but nonetheless will continue to age wonderfully well.
