(2001 Vintage) Robert Parker (96-99) points Quilceda Creek's saturated black-colored 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon continues this winery's brilliant string of successes. Its intense aromas reveal a huge depth of blackberry and cassis fruit. Concentrated, backward, and deep, it is a medium to full-bodied wine with exceptional balance, purity, focus, and length. Powerful yet refined, it coats the palate with cassis and jammy blackberries whose flavors linger for almost a minute. Projected maturity: 2008-2020+.
