2015 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley

99 POINTS Jeb Dunnuck Notes, “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 and 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. I wasn’t able to taste the 2016s from Snohomish, WA based Quilceda Creek, but their 2015s are serious, sexy, opulent wines that check-in near the top of the vintage.” 99JD

96 points James Suckling
“This sets itself apart with concentration and poise, delivering the layers of fruit depth that great Cabernet wines possess. The palate’s impressively built on layers of ripe, fleshy fruit and superbly cut tannins. Holds long and regal. This is great wine.” 96JS

96 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“A powerful wine that bears the stamp of the vintage, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up aromas of minty crème de cassis, blackberries, dark chocolate and spice, framed by a lavish application of toasty new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and heady, with a generous core of ripe, liqueur-like fruit, a fine-grained chassis of tannins and a long, heavily oak-inflected finish. To hold the estate to its own high standards, after the more elegant and complete 2014, the 2015 vintage of Quilceda’s flagship bottling feels a bit more overtly high-octane and marked by its time in new wood, and I don’t think it will ever be as graceful. But it’s a lusty, expressive Cabernet Sauvignon that will drink well for a decade or more.” 96WA

96 points Vinous
“Dark red-ruby. Pungent aromas of ripe dark berries, licorice and cedary oak. Wonderfully suave and fine-grained, boasting terrific concentration, intensity and energy to its dark berry and African violet flavors. This very suave Cabernet finishes with terrific cocoa-powder length and substantial but refined mounting tannins. Paul Golitzin told me that he always aims to get two tons of fruit per acre–‘either by nature or through crop thinning.’ And he noted that his family now has full viticultural control over all of their properties.” 96V

96 points Wine Enthusiast
“This hails from Champoux, Lake Wallula, Palengat and Wallula Gap Vineyards. The aromas draw you into the glass, evoking anise, blackberry, black raspberry, graphite and exotic spices. The flavors show intense depth, richness and hedonism, and the finish seems endless. Best from 2029–2036.” *Cellar Selection* 96WE

94 points Wine Spectator
“Graceful, expressive and impeccably built, with precise dark berry, black olive and black tea flavors that broaden and expand on a lingering finish. Finishes with polished tannins.” 94WS
