The 2017 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Quilceda Creek is absolutely sensational. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from Champoux, Lake Wallula, Palengat, and Wallula Vineyards and spent 20 months in 100% new French oak. As this slowly begins to unwind in the glass it releases deep seductive aromatics of black cherries, cassis and black plums that are joined by fresh violets, graphite and minerals along with hints of sweet spices and mocha that all come together and lift from the glass. On the palate this continues to impress with its stunning full-bodied texture, that is seamless and beautifully polished with a wonderful sense of freshness. It goes on to display an absolutely gorgeous soft, enveloping texture, along with excellent depth and concentration all the way through the long, graceful finish that slowly comes to an end. The 2017 is a marvelous wine that is already simply stunning in its youth, however it should also go on to have a brilliant future offering decades of enjoyment ahead.
