1999 Quilceda Creek Vintners Cabernet Sauvignon Washington State
Producer: Quilceda Creek Vintners
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Columbia Valley
93(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2002
($75; 14.9% alcohol; includes 3% merlot) Full red-ruby. Highly nuanced nose combines sappy black raspberry, black cherry, spicy oak, loam and menthol, plus hints of meat and maple syrup. Offers a compelling combination of sweetness and grip. The lush palate is spicy but shapely and nicely delineated; not yet complex but already exudes lovely inner-mouth perfume. Very long, broad finish features substantial tannins that coat the entire mouth and dust the teeth. Shows the hint of austerity that promises a long and graceful evolution in bottle. Should rank among the best cabernets to date from this world-class producer.
