A monumental wine in the making, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of those wines that presents such an over the top array of aromas and flavors that it’s hard to figure out what you think about it with just a quick glance. It’s only with the second or third sip that you really start to see how special this effort truly is. Offering up perfumed, intense aromas of plum, violets, ink, licorice and black currants, it flows onto the palate with a massive, incredibly full-bodied texture that builds through the mid-palate and carries layers of polished tannins, awesome purity of fruit and blockbuster length. Most likely not for everyone given the sheer size, it is an incredible wine in my opinion. Still tasting like a barrel sample, it will have 30+ total years of longevity. Drink 2017-2037. - Jeb Dunnuck

This feels slightly softer in the mouth than the massive 2006, but carries the density and gravitas that one associates with Quilceda Creek. Wonderful balance, with a deeply detailed set of flavors that gather strength as they move through the palate. Mixed berries, threaded with chocolate, lingering with black cherry, cassis, smoke, cedar, lead pencil and more.

Lovely vibrancy to the aromas of blackcurrant plum licorice and cocoa powder with a strong impression of minerality. Like liquid silk on the palate and yet powerful at the same time with strong minerality contributing to the impression of lift and inner-mouth perfume. The dark berry violet and cocoa powder flavors offer compelling early sweetness and this wine's wonderfully lush tannins will not get in the way of early enjoyment. A great example of the new generation of Quilceda Creek cabernet. Based on its superb length and balance I'd cellar this for even more fireworks ahead.

Firm with a light grip of tannins around a core of dark berry currant smoke and tobacco flavors. This has elegance and depth with a welcome sense of reticence that doesn't push the flavors too strong. Finishes very long... Firm with a light grip of tannins around a core of dark berry currant smoke and tobacco flavors. This has elegance and depth with a welcome sense of reticence that doesn't push the flavors too strong. Finishes very long with a silky texture. Drink now through 2017. 4250 cases made. -HS
