2001 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Magnum - 98 pts!
The dark ruby-colored 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon (3,150 cases) contains 3% Cabernet Franc. This spectacular wine explodes from the glass with loads of flowers (mostly violets), cassis, black cherries, blackberries, and underlying fresh herbs. Feeling like liquid satin on the palate, it is broad, densely-packed, and has stupendous depth. A refined effort, its medium to full-bodied personality is crammed with highly-detailed black fruits and loads of exquisitely ripe tannin. In addition, the taster has the distinct feeling that this wine is holding much of its fruit in reserve... This blockbuster has it all! Projected maturity: 2007-2018. They’ve done it again! Each year, as I get set to write about Quilceda Creek’s newest releases, I find myself at a loss for words since Robert Parker and I seem to have exhausted all the superlatives at our disposal over the years. Therefore, I must repeat myself: There is no producer in the world that fashions Cabernet Sauvignons as consistently extraordinary as Quilceda Creek. RP
