We will be releasing the 2008 vintage of Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley to private members in January, 2011. This follows exciting news that the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon was recognized as Quilceda Creek's fourth 100-point rated wine from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #190, August 2010) in the last six years. This validates the consistent, world-class quality that can be achieved from Washington State's finest vineyards. "The entire portfolio is a tour de force," the publication wrote last summer, "Quilceda Creek remains Washington's benchmark for world-class Cabernet Sauvignon."

The 2008 season began with a cool spring with bud-break delayed by about 10-14 days. The month of May presented a small heat spike followed by little precipitation. Similarly, the bloom was delayed 1-2 weeks. Entering into September, the temperatures were warm, sunny and dry allowing for even ripening of the fruit. After strict grading and selection, we were able to produce an extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon.
