Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

The most evolved of the lineup, with complex spice box, wild herbs, dried flowers, currants and scorched earth aromas all emerging from the glass, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is beautifully textured, full-bodied and seamless on the palate. Up-front and approachable, it nevertheless has the back-end richness, depth and structure to continue to evolve for another decade or more. Drink now-2023.

Very ripe and generous. Not a big wine, but brims with plum, currant, black olive, cedar and roasted meat flavors, all playing against crisp tannins and lingering on the tight finish. Needs time in the cellar in order to open and flourish.

This is an outstanding bottle of wine!!! Probably the best bottle I've had in 2014. Cork broke multiple times trying to open and had to put it through a coffee filter 3 times before the decanter, but it was worth the effort. Elegant nose of dark floral and cocoa scent. Upon first fast my eyes lit up. Smooth, romantic flavors and just the right balance of earth, structure, and dark fruit. I have got to get more of this

Site Blog: The Wine Forum Rich, but not weighty, nice balance. Not great at first, opens some with decanting but for the cost an underwhelming wine. Color: Garnet to claret red, dark red core Nose & Palate: Black currants, spicy oak, herbal, chocolate and some cassis. Finishes a tad oaky. Very underwhelming.

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."

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
