Winemaker's Notes

The 2000 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon is reminiscent of the 1998 Quilceda Creek on steroids. This wine is packed full of blackberry liquor, plums, and crème de cassis laden with anise smoke and spices, it has a fabulous syrupy texture, show-casing the amazing purity of cabernet fruit found in this wine. It is the most perfumed and well-balanced Quilceda Creek wine to date.

Critical Acclaim

"The awesome dark ruby-colored 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 92.5% from the Champoux vineyard and the remainder from Red Mountain) reveals blackberry and currant aromas as well as a suave, cassis syrup-laden personality. This classy, medium to full-bodied, powerful, intense effort displays a seamless, harmonious character. Its concentrated fruit and angle-free structure promise a great future. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020+."
94 Points

"Announces itself as a serious red from the first whiff of earthy, smoky notes weaving through the licorice-scented dark berry flavors. This firm, chewy wine expands on the long finish under a layer of fine-grained tannins, holding it all together seamlessly. It begs for time in the cellar to develop."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.
