Quilceda Creek 2012
Quilceda Creek is one of the oldest family-owned and operated wineries in Washington State having been established by Alex Golitzin in 1978. The 2012 Columbia Valley Cabernet is a bold and powerful release with wonderful layers of cassis, black cherry, cigar smoke, graphite and exotic spices. With huge richness and concentration, it is pinned together by a sublime tannic framework and peps of acid brightness. This wine has become a standard bearer for Washington State and continues to be one of the most consistently exceptional quality releases coming out of North America.
