Excited to announce that yet another Washington Cab has received the prestigious “100” title. What better subject to blog about on #CabarnetDay — the all-day event celebrating the Cabernet grape across all social media platforms as well as in various “in-person” locations all throughout the world — right?
For the 4th year this decade, Quilceda Creek has taken home the perfect “100” with their 2007 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Dr. Jay Miller, of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, has given them one more trophy to display on their mantel, right next to their other 100 point score from 2005, and their back to back 2003 and 2002 vintages of the their flagship wine.
The Cab features 3% Merlot, is aged 22 months in new French oak, and is “multi-dimensional” with notes of “sandalwood, Asian spices, violets, truffle, black currant, and blackberry” and should age “effortlessly” for 30 years, according to Dr. Miller.
Although Mutineer Magazine does not condone or support systems of rating and reviewing fine beverages, we are excited to hear that well-made wines from lesser-known regions are getting the media attention they deserve. Washington State is producing some truly amazing wines that rival the best from around the world. And Quilceda Creek is just one excellent example of what the state has to offer!
