Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Washington 2002
This wine presents a delicate balance of power versus finesse showcasing nuances of lilac, sweet dark fruits, smoke, and Asian spices. We worked very hard to make this wine rival or surpass our 2001 Cabernet. By rigorously applying the finest viticultural practices to the vineyard, meticulously selecting the best fruit, and integrating these ingredients with gentle fruit handling we arrived at this classic, age worthy wine.
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.
External Reviews for Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Washington
...Superripe aromas of cassis black raspberry minerals and chocolate. Rich lush and expressive; superconcentrated but not at all heavy. In fact this broad suave wine offers a compellingly silky texture. Finishes impressively rich dry and long with firm but fine-grained tannins... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
...displays blackberry, tar, violet, herb, and cassis aromas that lead to a velvety-textured, penetrating character. Effortlessly sporting that mind-boggling juxtaposition of power and elegance, it slathers the palate with red cherries, blackberries,... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
