    Winemaker's Notes:

    The debut release of the Quilceda Creek 2006 Palengat Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon displays the wonderful aromatic perfume of the Horse Heaven Hills A.V.A. This vineyard was planted in 2000-2002 on deep, consistent, Sagehill series soil. It is located on an ideal south facing slope on Phinney Hill, right next to Champoux Vineyard, which is the source of most of the Cabernet Sauvignon for our flagship wine. This vineyard is 8.5 acres in size with 59% of the vines being high density (2270 vines/acre). Having this many plants per acre fills in the mid-palate often missing from varieties such as Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This source allows us to make wines with these varietals that are dense, rich, full bodied and complex. The wine showcases floral black and red fruits, smoked meat, anise, minerals and spicy cedar characteristics. This wine should age gracefully for 25 years.

    Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is the first vintage of the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Palengat Vineyard, located in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA. The wine also contains 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Purple-colored, it offers up a splendid perfume of wood smoke, spice box, pencil lead, espresso, violets, black currant, and blackberry. Full-bodied, plush, and concentrated, it is already revealing considerable complexity despite the youth of the vines. In spite of its size, the wine manages to retain a sense of elegance, a trademark of all of Quilceda Creek's wines. Give it 5-7 years of additional bottle age and drink it from 2015 to 2026.

    The Wine Advocate

    Deep red. Sexy, expressive aromas of dark fruits, lead pencil, licorice and smoky oak. Silky-sweet, broad and mouthfilling, with highly concentrated dark fruit and graphite flavors. Finishes with chewy, ripe, broad tannins and palate-coating sweetness.
