    Like the CVR release, the 2013 Palengat Vineyard is slightly darker than its 2012 counterpart and is one serious barrel sample. Incorporating more Merlot from the Wallula Vineyard (which largely came on line in 2012), the blend in 2013 is 58% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc. It gives up tons of blackberry and cassis fruit to go with licorice, chocolate and wild herbs aromas and flavors, Full-bodied, voluptuous and concentrated, with terrific purity of fruit, it will be reasonably approachable on release and drink well fro 10-15 years.

  • 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."
