Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Washington 1995

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Firm and chewy, a solid wine with appealing blackberry, plum and currant flavors poking through the thin veil of tannins draped over the finish. Flavors linger impressively. Best from 2000 through 2005. 2,250 cases made. -HS Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from Washington in USA. 1995 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 1500ml
