No Washington winery commands more attention from wine collectors than Quilceda Creek, with repeated 100-point scores and subsequent appreciating bottle value. Since 1978, the Alex Golitzin and his son Paul have been lauded for their flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, which is elevated by the Bordelais practice of declassification of up to one third of production into a second label each year. In his recent book, The World�s Greatest Wine Estate, Parker ranks Quilceda Creek alongside such old world estates as Chateau Lafite, Latour and Petrus writing that Quilceda Creek �is turning out compelling wines of irrefutable richness and complexity�These are prodigious, world-class wines�. The fruit for their 4,000-case production is sourced from the finest vineyards on the far side of the Cascade Mountains, and the Golitzins are meticulous in their oversight of the viticultural practices. Driven to produce the greatest wine possible, Alex and Paul know what they want in a wine and what to do to get it.�
