Quilceda Creek Palengat

The 2019 Quilceda Creek Palengat Cabernet Sauvignon Mach One Vineyard Clone 685 represents a new direction for “Palengat,” one of two member-exclusive, single clone Cabernet Sauvignons from the stunning Mach One Vineyard. This is the first time we have produced single clone bottlings of Cabernet, and we couldn’t have asked for a better vintage. Above average temperatures and historically low vineyard yields resulted in wines of exceptional quality in 2019.

Mach One, a unique and stunning site overlooking the Columbia River in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, was planted in 2010 to experiment with French Cabernet clones 685 and 412. It was the first time these two clones were planted in Washington State, and we chose to plant the vines on their own rootstock, allowing them to grow and express themselves in a more natural and distinct way. What began as an experiment proved to be such a resounding success that we decided to showcase each clone on its own.

A tribute to our co-founder, Jeannette Golitzin, whose maiden name is Palengat, the 2019 Quilceda Creek Palengat Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Clone 685 Cabernet Sauvignon from Mach One Vineyard. In addition to being a single vineyard, single varietal, single clone bottling, the 2019 “Palengat” is an expression of barrels from a single artisanal cooperage, completing our longstanding vision for this wine. Deep purple-black in color, the nose has a wonderful perfume of blueberry, plum and cassis fruit. Nuances of lavender, leather, chocolate, minerals and spice coat the palate. It has a very singular personality, with great purpose, and is unquestionably the best “Palengat” to date. Drink 2023-2043. SOLD OUT



“Clone 685 has an aromatic component reminiscent of great Cabernet Franc. Its high-toned aromatics and purple fruit characteristics always remind me of that varietal, which is part of the reason we chose to bottle it separately.”

— Paul Golitzin
