Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 offers intense aromas and flavors of Wild Mountain blackberries muddled with chocolate truffles, violet pastille, pencil lead, sage and minerals. Due to increasing vine age coupled with a wonderful growing season, this is the finest example of the Galitzine terroir yet. Aged in 100% new French oak for 22 months, it is a blend of 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot. All of our 2007's will have large drinking windows because of their lush textures and sensual, liqueur like personalities. Drink Now – 2040.

About Quilceda Creek Vintners:

Quilceda Creek is dedicated exclusively to the production of world-class Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon. Founded in 1979, Quilceda Creek has had an unbroken string of highly-rated vintages that has led Robert Parker, Jr. to name it Washington State's premeir Cabernet Sauvignon producer.

"Quilceda Creek...makes Cabernet of unrivaled finesse. This small winery...has the best track record of any Washington winery...No other Washington Cabernet is as graceful yet profound."
Matt Kramer
The L.A. Times

"Make no mistake about the Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignons - they are world-class Cabernets that compete with the finest wines from Bordeaux, Napa Valley, Sonoma and Santa Cruz Mountains."
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s
