Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Washington 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Vintage Notes: Winemakers: Paul Golitzin, Alex Golitzin, Marv Crum Varietal: 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc Vineyards:Champoux, Ciel du Cheval, Klipsun, Taptiel Barrels: 100% New French Oak Time in Barrel: 22 Months Bottled: August 2003 Case Production: 3150 Cases Winemaker's comments The 2001 vintage produced the finest raw material we had ever seen at Quilceda. It was really exciting going through the various vineyard sections selecting only the very best lots to go into the cabernet. We knew we had a very special wine from the start and it has really developed into greatness. This wine has a wonderful texture showcasing layers of black and red fruits interwoven with cocoa powder, leather, vanilla, and minerals. This is an amazing wine that must be tasted again and again.

...Explosive pungent aromas of dark raspberry baking spices and cocoa powder. Then fat lush and deep with powerful flavors of raspberry minerals and baking chocolate. Began slightly clenched but expanded impressively with aeration to show a seductively plump texture. Finishes fat minerally and very long with big but fine-grained tannins and a hint of nuts...

The dark ruby-colored 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon (3,150 cases) contains 3% Cabernet Franc. This spectacular wine explodes from the glass with loads of flowers (mostly violets), cassis, black cherries, blackberries, and underlying fresh herbs. Feeling like liquid satin on the palate, it is broad, densely-packed, and has stupendous depth. A refined effort, its medium to full-bodied personality is crammed with highly-detailed black fruits and loads of exquisitely ripe tannin. In addition, the taster has the distinct feeling that this wine is holding much of its fruit in reserve... This blockbuster has it all! Projected maturity: 2007-2018. They ve done it again!
