2003 Quilceda Creek - Wine Advocate #164 - Apr 2006: Unlike some minuscule production cult wines or luxury cuvees culled from a winerys primary product that have earned perfect scores over the years, Quilceda Creeks Cabernet Sauvignon is the winerys raison detre and is produced in significant quantities (3,400 cases in 2002, 3,425 in 2003). For accomplishing this feat the Golitzens should be doubly proud. Darker colored and significantly more powerful than the 2002, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon displays mouth-watering aromatics of black chocolate, sage, and blackberry liqueur. Its awe-inspiring core of cassis liqueur, violets, blueberry nectar, black cherry syrup, and chocolate is immensely muscular yet elegant. Texturally reminiscent of liquid velvet, it slathers the palate with oodles of fruit, displaying unreal depth, balance, and length. Wow Projected maturity: 2010-2024. Congratulations Alex and Paul, welcome to the big leagues.
