Quilceda Creek's Spring Release

Quilceda Creek Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

2013 Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Mountain

"Always the most structured and tannic in the lineup (this is always presented after the Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon), the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Galitzine Vineyard has the same saturated purple color of all the '13s and yields sensational notes of blackcurrants, asphalt, graphite, ground herbs and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, big, concentrated and structured, it still stays beautifully balanced, has a supple texture, and while that's lots of tannin, they're sweet and polished. Give it 4-5 years in the cellar and enjoy bottles through 2033."

Quilceda Creek Palengat Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

2013 Palengat Proprietary Red Wine, Horse Heaven Hills

"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 from 10-15 years."
