($35; a 70/20/10 blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernetfranc) Full, deep red. Roasted strawberry, plum and nutty oak; just this side of stewy. Lush and round in the mouth, with slightly roasted flavors of plum, minerals, nuts and smoke. Could use a bit more verve. Finishes with a slight tannic dryness.

The opaque, dark ruby-colored 2002 Red Wine (Quilceda Creek's "second label") reveals fresh blackberry and violet aromas. A 975-case blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc, it is medium-bodied, concentrated, and packed with tar-laced black fruits, currants, and tannin. A structured effort with an admirably long finish, this wine is a candidate for drinking between 2008 and 2018. Congratulations Alex and Paul, welcome to the big leagues.

About This Producer


No Washington winery commands more attention from wine collectors than Quilceda Creek, with repeated 100-point scores and subsequent appreciating bottle value. Since 1978, the Alex Golitzin and his son Paul have been lauded for their flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, which is elevated by the Bordelais practice of declassification of up to one third of production into a second label each year. The fruit for their 4,000-case production is sourced from the finest vineyards on the far side of the Cascade Mountains, and the Golitzins are meticulous in their oversight of the viticultural practices. Driven to produce the greatest wine possible, Alex and Paul "know what they want in a wine and what to do to get it."
