2002 Quilceda Creek Cabernet - 100 pts!

Quilceda Creek Winery is one of Washington's most prestigious wine producers. The winery's focus is on Cabernet Sauvignon, which has been very well-received: the 2002 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon was the first American wine outside of California to be awarded 100 points by Robert Parker.

The winery was founded in 1978 by Alex Golitzin, who was inspired to make wine by his uncle André Tchelistcheff, one of the most significant winemakers in California at the time. Alex Golitzin's son, Paul, began working at the winery in 1992 and is now the winemaker.

Robert Parker 100 RP - Unlike some minuscule production "cult" wines or luxury cuvees culled from a winery's primary product that have earned perfect scores over the years Quilceda Creek's Cabernet Sauvignon is the winery's raison d'etre and is produced in significant quantities 3400 cases in 2002 3425 in 2003. For accomplishing this feat the Golitzens should be doubly proud. Dark ruby-colored and sporting a nose of violets sweet blueberries dark cherries and slight undertones of asphalt the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon blossoms on the palate to expose a wine of ethereal delicacy yet immense power. Medium to full-bodied it expands to reveal concentrated layers of cassis blackberries red cherries raspberries violets spices and touches of candied plums. This rich exquisitely balanced sweet and broad wine is harmonious graceful and awesomely long.
