We are proud to announce the private release of our extraordinary 2017 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley. The 2017 growing season started out with a fairly cool Spring, followed by above average temperatures in July and August. Almost all of our Cabernet Sauvignon achieved its final ripening after copious amounts of hang time in October. The resulting fruit was physiologically mature, intense, and perfect. The 2017 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley showcases the singular and elusive perfume of Champoux Vineyard at its very best. Aromas and flavors of violets, lavender, blackberry, cassis, and plum fruit can be found in the wine with nuances of cocoa nib, spice, and minerals. The ethereal, silky texture allows the rich fruit to coat the palate in a horizontal fashion, allowing the taster to experience the purity and seamless integration of all its elements in wonderful harmony. Drink now through 2040.
