The flagship wine from Quilceda Creek offers exotic scents of plum, cassis, loam, coffee and pine sap, a rich and evocative blend. The wine delivers all that is promised and more; it is deep and dense with flavor, polished, focused and persistent. Vanilla, espresso, fine tannins, luscious acids and cascading fruits.

More pure and focused than the 2009, with a slightly closer to the vest feel, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon shows the cooler nature of the vintage and has incredible detail, purity and freshness to its aromas and flavors.

More pure and focused than the 2009, with a slightly closer to the vest feel, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon shows the cooler nature of the vintage and has incredible detail, purity and freshness to its aromas and flavors. A blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Merlot that spent 22 months in 100% new French oak, it offers classic black currant, spice box, coffee bean, violets and exotic spices to go with an ethereal, layered and seamless palate that delivers massive amounts of fruit and texture without any apparent weight. I thoroughly enjoyed it now, yet it will age for decades. Drink now-2033. 97+ - Jeb Dunnuck

Complex slightly high-toned aromas of plum and brown sugar. Wonderfully sweet but firmly built; dense smooth and complex with the terrific definition of the 2008 vintage at its best. A hint of nutty ripeness is countered by a lively suggestion of eucalyptus. This is harmonious from day one. Comes across as less sweet than the Palengat finishing with great length and breadth but no undue weight and spreading out to coat the mouth with flavor.

Firm in texture with sandy tannins around a supple core of ripe plush cherry tobacco and tar flavors. Finishes with persistence and flashes of sage and bay leaf.

Finishes with persistence and flashes of sage and bay leaf. Long and inviting this is built for the cellar. Best from 2014 through 2020. 3625 cases made.
