Item Description

Don't miss this chance to add a great wine to your cellar, now is the opportunity to bid on this amazine wine!!

#2 Wine on the Wine Spectator List of the Top 100 Wines of 2015. Extremely Rare Washington Wine - Sold Out everywhere. Kept in a temperature controlled wine cellar since received from Quilceda Creek. Priceless!

Winemaker notes: The 2012 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley is a seamless wine that coats the entire palate with copious amounts of blackberry, blueberry and cassis fruit with complex soy, smoke, graphite, spice and mineral undertones. All of this deep and rich fruit is perfectly complemented by additional floral suggestions of Hyacinth and Lavender.

This classic wine should age effortlessly for 20+ years. 750ml bottle

Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. All the brilliant reviews are listed below!

Critical Acclaim RP 98 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is brilliant!

Notes: #2 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2015. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, mostly from the famous Champoux Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills, it was aged all in new oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered. It offers a captivating bouquet of black cherry liqueur and cassis-like fruit, Asian spice, coffee bean and lead pencil shavings to go with a full-bodied, ripe, seamless and hedonistic style on the palate.

One of the more approachable, opulent examples of this cuvee, it has no hard edges, plenty of tannin and a massive, heady finish. Give it 2-4 years in the cellar and enjoy bottles through 2032.

JD 98 Jeb Dunnuck: A classic wine from this estate, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon gives up tons of lead pencil shavings, toasted bread, sweet black currants, and graphite in a pedal-to-the-metal, rich, locked and loaded style. Possessing no hard edges, full-bodied, richness, no weight and a killer finish, this tour de force in Washington State Cabernet will drink brilliantly for another two decades or more.

WS 96 Wine Spectator: Polished, focused and generous, with red plum and cherry flavors in an elegant package, framed with fine tannins. A savory, meaty note runs through this at a subterranean level. Lingers beautifully. Drink now through 2028.

WE 95 Wine Enthusiast: All Cabernet from Champoux, Klipsun, Palengat and Wallula vineyards, this wine offers aromas of blackberry, incense, blueberry, pencil lead and barrel spices. On the palate, it’s tightly wound with black fruit flavors and a firm backbone of tannins. The oak is primary right now. It needs extended time in the cellar to show itself fully, and will be best from 2022–2030.
