Quilceda Creek 2010 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
About the Wine: The 2010 growing season started with bud break arriving on schedule in early April. Then a cool, wet spring led to delayed flowering and reduced fruit set, resulting in naturally low yields. The cool summer produced dramatic differences between warmer and cooler site throughout the state. Our vineyards are located in two of the hottest AVA’s for this very reason. The result is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon. 2010 Marks the 32nd vintage of Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon.
Winemaker Paul Golitzin describes the 2010 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon as having a rich, velvety mouth feel. It is filled with layers of dark chocolate covered black cherry, blackberry, and plum fruit with exotic nuances of Tahitian vanilla bean, violet pastilles, and Asian spices. Its seamless integration of all its component parts makes it approachable now, but will age effortlessly for 20+ years.
