Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Washington 1998
Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot) is loaded with blackberry, blueberry, plum and cassis with nuances of dark chocolate and violets. Classically structured, this complex wine has remarkable elegance and persistence on the long, pure finish. Approachable now, it should reach maturity around 2012 and age for 25 or more years. While we are particularly proud of the last three vintages of our flagship wine, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon easily rivals them as one of the best wines our estate has ever produced.
Quilceda Creek is dedicated exclusively to the production of world-class Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon. Founded in 1979, Quilceda Creek has had an unbroken string of highly-rated vintages that has led Robert Parker Jr. to name it Washington State’s premier Cabernet Sauvignon producer.

Dense, deep and powerful, a many-layered red that piles on its rich currant, plum, black cherry and peppery spice flavors, finishing with touches of cedar and mint. A glorious, cellar-worthy Cabernet with plenty of superrefined tannins... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from Washington in USA. 1998 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 1500ml
...Deep aromas of redcurrant, strawberry, blueberry, loam, tar, smoke and minerals; as ripe as this is, it also conveys a suggestion of sappy, crystallized fruits. Large-scaled, fat and rich, with compellingly sweet, superripe berry and dark chocolat... Stephen Tanzer. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from Washington in USA. 1998 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
