Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 99pts:
I think the wine of the vintage, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Columbia Valley is flat out sensational, and flirts with perfection. Its inky ruby/purple color is followed by incredible notes of cassis, black currants, smoked herbs, licorice and graphite. These give way to a full-bodied, utterly seamless Cabernet that has full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin and a killer finish. While it possesses the elegance and purity of the vintage, it has a stacked mid-palate, and deserves 4-5 years of cellaring. It will have two decades or more of overall longevity
Wine Spectator 94pts:
Broad and expressive, layering black cherry, plum, pear and black tea flavors into a beam that focuses the finish against well-managed but present tannins. Has depth, marvelous expression and length. Best from 2018 through 2025
From the winemaker:
We are pleased to offer you the 2013 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley. The 2013 growing season started with a warm spring that promoted early bud development. The excellent weather continued through April providing good canopy growth and a hot and dry August-November allowed for perfect ripening conditions.
The 2013 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley is one of the finest wines we have made to date. It has an opaque purple color with vibrant flavors of raspberry, plum, cassis and fig fruit with nuances of violets, graphite, cedar and spice. This decadent wine coats the entire palate with its richness and generous flavor profile due to its wonderful silky texture and purity. Drink now – 2033. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
