Winemaker's Notes:

The Quilceda Creek 2009 Palengat Proprietary Red Wine displays the wonderful aromatic perfume of the Horse Heaven Hills A.V.A. Planted in 1997-2002 on deep, consistent, Sagehill series soil. The wine showcases floral violet, pain grille and blackberry blossoms hovering above a deep, rich, decadent core of black current, blackberry, fig and plum fruit infused with Asian spices.

Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot

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
The Wine Advocate
