Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Washington 1995
Vintage Notes: Winemakers: Alex Golitzin, Paul Golitzin Varietal: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot Vineyards: Ciel du Cheval, Kiona, Klipsun, Mercer Ranch(Champoux) Barrels: 100% New French Oak Time in Barrel: 22 Months Time in Bottle before release: 13 months Case Production: 2250 Cases The 1995 vintage was a late one, with the first grapes beginning harvested on September 17 and the last of the Cabernet Sauvignon coming in on October 22. Cool summers are not a problem in eastern Washington because the Cascade Mountains hold back the Fall Pacific storms, allowing us to leave the grapes on the vines until they are totally physiologically mature. The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon is a hedonistic blend of black cherries, cedar, chocolate and spice. The addition of 11% Merlot give the wine a beautiful complex aroma and a great depth of flavor, with the Merlot fruit layered on top of the density and textural elements of the Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is really delicious now, yet has the structure to age beautifully in your cellar for a good 25 years.
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.
