Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Washington 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2003 vintage resulted in wines that have stunning aromas, flavors and texture. Violets, black-cherry and blackberry coat the palate, layering complex notes of Vahlrhona chocolate, wood-smoke and Asian spice. This wine will mature nicely over the next 7 to 8 years and continue to age gracefully for at least another 10-20 years. Full ruby-red. Knockout nose combines blackcurrant, blueberry, smoke, tobacco, road tar, coffee and milk chocolate. Wonderfully ripe and lush but uncompromisingly dry, with an exhilarating underlying minerality and superb lift to its fruit and torrefaction flavors. Full and complete, finishing with outstanding breadth and lingering sweetness.

The finest Red Wine the Golitzens have fashioned to date, the 2003 (1,300 cases) is an assemblage of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Merlot.

Full ruby-red. Knockout nose combines blackcurrant blueberry smoke tobacco road tar coffee and milk chocolate. Wonderfully ripe and lush but uncompromisingly dry with an exhilarating underlying minerality and superb lift to its fruit and torrefaction flavors. Full and complete finishing with outstanding breadth and lingering sweetness. Paul Golitzin notes that tannin management at Quilceda Creek is far more sophisticated today than it was in the mid- 90s. 93-96 points Stephen Tanzers IWC.
