2019 Quilceda Creek “Tchelistcheff” Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 412

Mach One Vineyard

Horse Heaven Hills

Singularly Complex

Quilceda Creek Palengat & Tchelistcheff

The 2019 Quilceda Creek Tchelistcheff Cabernet Sauvignon Mach One Vineyard Clone 412 is 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.

The 2019 Quilceda Creek Tchelistcheff Cabernet Sauvignon is the newest addition to our portfolio, and the first new wine we have introduced since 2006. The wine continues our tradition of using family names for new and limited bottlings; “Tchelistcheff” was the maiden name of founder Alex Golitzin’s mother, who was the sister of legendary winemaker André Tchelistcheff, known as the “Dean of American winemaking.” The 2019 “Tchelistcheff” is 100% Clone 412 Cabernet Sauvignon from Mach One Vineyard, making for a rich and complex wine. This distinct, unique Cabernet is black in color with an aromatic cornucopia of spicy black fruits and nuances of anise, unsmoked cigars, bay leaf and minerals. Drink 2023-2045. SOLD OUT

“I like to joke that clone 412 doesn’t play well with others, but the reality is that the clone makes such a complete wine on its own that it doesn’t need to be blended with anything else.”

— Paul Golitzin
