HORSE HEAVEN HILLS
2016 WASHINGTON STATE

2016 Double Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon Horse Heaven Hills Washington StateCalifornia isn’t the only state on the West Coast capable of producing World-Class Cabernet Sauvignon. There’s an Appellation inside the Columbia Valley called Horse Heaven Hills that’s home to iconic vineyards like Champoux in Alderdale, which Quilceda Creek fans might recognize. They’ve produced five perfect 100 point Cabernets from it. Double Canyon sources from four sites within the Alderdale region, and at $23, you’ve really got to try it.

The Horse Heaven Hills Appellation is defined by it’s proximity to the Columbia River, strong winds, and volcanic soils, which produce a distinct mineral nuance. The area even caught the eye of Andre Tchelistcheff, legendary winemaker at Beaulieu Vineyards. 

The 2016 combines fruit from Phinny Hill, Destiny Ridge, Alder Ridge, and their own Double Canyon Estate Vineyard. The final blend beautifully expresses the 88% Cabernet Sauvignon heightened with Syrah, Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Malbec, which all contribute to the rich textures and compelling flavors.

“… What impressed us about this wine beyond its value were its numerous layers of aromas and flavors. Roasted coffee, cedar, and blackberry are distinctive on the nose, and on the palate, tobacco, underbrush, and grainy tannins keep the mouth dry with chalky, teeth-gripping texture. It’s structured and clean, with a sweet, toasty finish.”    93 Points

2015 Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Cabernet SauvignonModeling absolute excellence, very few wines have a track record of mastery as illustrious as Quilceda Creek.  Averaging 98.9 Points from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, over the past 14 vintages, Quilceda Creek’s Estate Cabernet doesn’t just compete with the best wines in the world, it sets the bar for them.  Their Estate Cabernet has also appeared Wine Spectator Top 100 list on five separate occasions and many would credit the winery with putting Washington’s Columbia Valley AVA on the map. Jeb Dunnuck, former critic at Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate has already scored the 2015 a near perfect 99 Points and we don’t expect our allocation to last through the day…
Utilizing 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Champoux, Lake Wallula, Palengat, and Wallula Gap Vineyards this stunning achievement spends 20 months developing in 100% New French oak Barrels.  With greatness immersed so deep, you can literally taste it, the 2015 saturates your palate in voluptuous dark berries, black plum, tobacco, minerals and cocoa. I strongly recommend securing some, while supplies last.  We simply never have enough of this wine to satisfy demand.

From Jeb Dunnuck:The flagship is the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon mostly from Champoux with the balance from Palengat and Wallula vineyards. Crème de cassis, graphite, black licorice, unsmoked tobacco, and hints of chocolate and emerge from this beauty and it continues to gain depth and nuance with time in the glass. Full-bodied, deep, and layered with an incredible purity and elegance on the palate, it’s already accessible but has more than enough tannin, depth, and balance to evolve for two decades or more.”  99 Points

2013 PROPRIETARY RED
COLUMBIA VALLEY 

 
In wine, some of the best opportunities arise when luxury brands have excess barrels of premium juice.  Quillia was born from a collection of some of the most prestigious vineyards in Washington State, and was created using the same tools and techniques as the marquee wines. Each component was carefully blended into a wine that performs many levels above it’s price, and like other wines in this category, Quillia is contractually obligated to silence on the specific origins of each component.  Of course, one taste will tell you all that you need to know, and at $25/btl this could take your house red to levels previously unknown… 
Emerging from Washington’s coveted Columbia Valley AVA, an area made famous by Chateau Saint Michelle, Quilceda Creek and other iconic Washington State wineries.  Interestingly, Columbia Valley is almost directly on the same latitude as Bordeaux and the area clearly produces world-class Cabernet based wines.  The 2013 is a riveting blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, enhanced with Merlot, Cab Franc, Syrah, Mourvedre and Petite Verdot and the wine is deep, persistent and compelling to levels that are rarely found at this price.  I highly recommend a case, or two…

 Recognized as one of the 2016 Wine Spectator wineries to watch, Luke’s 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and extracted, yet perfectly poised and elegant, with substantial quantities of chocolate covered raspberries, creme de cassis, pulverized blackberries, and dried violets.  A palpable sense of value is absolutely unmistakable in this wine, and the previous three consecutive vintages have all earned 90 and above scores in the Wine Spectator…

Sparking an intense love affair with Washington Wines with just a single taste, when we first offered Sparkman’s 2013 Holler Cabernet two years ago we knew it would induce one of those where have you been all my life moments…  Later that year it went on to rank #21 in the world on the Wine Spectator Top 100 and even outscored icons like Screaming Eagle at more than 25 times its price.

Carved from eight distinct vineyards and kept for 19 months in oak Barrels, the 2015 is stunningly concentrated, poised and beautifully proportioned.  Both the 2013 and 2014 were wines that left a deep impression, and followed up by the 2015, I can honestly say this is my favorite one yet.  If you’ve had interest in experiencing a great wine from this incredible region, this is the perfect opportunity to try one of the best.

A wine with fabulous upside potential, this idyllic expression of Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon emerges from the winery’s high elevation vineyard where the explosive terroir manifests perfectly in this exceptional, award-winning Cabernet.   Perpetually high scoring, an earlier vintage was named Best Cabernet at the Lake County Wine Awards Competition, where it earned a Double Gold Medal and outperformed some of the area’s other top wines.
