Quilceda Creek, Columbia Valley,Cabernet Sauvignon, 2015

$164.99

Jeb Dunnuck 99/00: “The flagship is the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon mostly from Champoux with the balance from Palengat and Wallula vineyards. Crème de cassis, graphite, black licorice, unsmoked tobacco, and hints of chocolate emerge from this beauty and it continues to gain depth and nuance with time in the glass. Full-bodied, deep, and layered with an incredible purity and elegance on the palate, it’s already accessible but has more than enough tannin, depth, and balance to evolve for two decades or more.”

 

The 2015 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley is a truly majestic wine with great purity, class and breed. The wealth of blackberry, blueberry and black cherry fruit is remarkable, with hints of spring flowers, cocoa powder, roasted herbs, forest floor and minerals. This wine will have a large drinking window due to the seamless integration of all its elements. Drink now through 2037.

Description

Founded in 1978, 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.

Family owned and operated, winemaking runs deep in our veins. Our founder, Alex Golitzin – American spelling – is a descendent of Prince Lev Sergeevich Galitzine, the acclaimed winemaker to Russian Czar Nicholas II’s Abrau Dursau estate, as well as the Massandra and Novy Svet sparkling wine estates. Prince Lev Galitzine is the most famous figure among all those who were involved in the development of Russian winemaking and was dubbed “the creator of Russian champagne”.
At the outbreak of the Russian Revolution in 1917, Alex’s parents fled for their lives to Paris where Alex was born. In 1946, after WWII, Alex and his family emigrated to San Francisco, California. Throughout his youth, Alex regularly visited Napa Valley and his maternal uncle, André Tchelistcheff, legendary Napa Valley winemaker at Beaulieu Vineyard, who is known as the “Dean of American Winemaking”.
In 1967, Alex and his wife Jeannette moved the family to Washington State where he worked as a chemical engineer. Quilceda Creek was established in 1978. The winery’s first vintage was in 1979, making Quilceda Creek one of the oldest, family-owned and controlled wineries in the State of Washington.
Paul Golitzin joined his father as winemaker in 1992 and now directs all aspects of vineyard management and winemaking. With a gifted palate and a no-compromise commitment to quality, Paul focused the winery’s attention on its greatest assets: the vineyards of the Columbia Valley. Paul’s vision catapulted the wines to a new level of excellence.
