Quilceda Creek Cabernet
Region:USA > Washington
- 40th Anniversary Edition -
Quilceda is unequivocally one of the most remarkable producers within Washington State. Since 1978, the Golitzin family has continuously produced evocative, world-class wines based on Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2006, they were the first American winery outside of California to receive 100 points for their Cabernet Sauvignon and continued to score 100 points, leading to Quilceda Creek receiving more 100-point scores by Robert Parker than any other North American winery. This vintage is no different.
The 2018 vintage scored 100 Points and we certainly agree.
Layered, rich and intense bramble fruits; mostly blackberry and cassis, with nuances of violets, black truffle, graphite and dark chocolate. It’s beautifully structured, with well-integrated tannins, and scintillating texture. The palate is gleaming with black forest cake, sweet tobacco, fresh blueberries, mocha, fresh pencil shavings and autumn-like spice. The finish lingers with you until your next sip. A powerful and elegant wine that is possibly one of the most remarkable Cabernets from Washington State in 2018.
We would recommend cellaring this bottle for up to 20 years. If you are drawn to the idea of opening this Cabernet soon, we would recommend decanting the wine and pairing it with Beef Wellington.
