Quilceda Creek 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is here!

Through an odd set of circumstances, we have apparently received our annual allocation of the new 2009 QC cab before any other wine shops in the State. Now I know that doesn’t mean a thing to most of our regular visitors and followers, so as a result we still have most of the QC releases from the past six years or so in stock. Someday, we suppose, the word will get out and collectors will beat a path to our door for it, right…? So this post is a bit of an experiment, really, triggered by this curious moment in which we are the first shop in the State to have the wine in stock. (And like most of the other vintages, we will probably still have ours years after everyplace else has long since sold out!)

For those of you who don’t know, Quilceda Creek is one of the world’s very best producers of cabernet sauvignon, having earned unprecedented critical acclaim, its last eight vintages having earned nearly perfect scores of 99-100 points from critic Robert Parker. Suffice it to say it is highly regarded and rarely appears on wine shop shelves (except, you know, out here on the Frontier…)!

Robert Parker’s review: 
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley might, in the long run, prove to be at an even higher level (than the ’08). This beautifully proportioned, fragrant Cabernet deftly combines elegance and power. Give it a minimum of 4-5 years of additional cellaring and drink it through 2034.99-100 pts
