Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Vertical Tasting 2006-2010

Washington State’s premier benchmark Cabernet, 

Quilceda Creek is in a league of its own. Vintage after vintage, they flirt with or achieve near-perfection with a staggering five 100-point reviews over the past twelve vintages from the Wine Advocate. (Scores for 2006-2010: 99, 100, 97+, 99 98+).

Rare, coveted and inspiring to drink, a bottle of Quilceda is a wonderful thing. So how about five bottles, in consecutive vintage order, with enough age now to be showing their best? Add a magnum of Leonetti Cabernet Reserve 2006 for comparison as well as appropriate hors d’oeuvres- I think it’s going to be a great night. Plus, thanks to the generosity of a longtime supporter all proceeds will be donated to Children’s Cancer Association.   

Friday April 27, 6:30 pm. $125

Soil Exploration in Muscadet

With Muscadet Freak Michael Wheeler

Muscadet’s top domaines have long been known by wine insiders as some of the greatest values in wine. Basic cuvées that cost $15 can age a decade easily, and crus for as much as 40 years. Muscadet’s combination of various mineral soils and old vines are at the heart of this ageability. In recent years, an even deeper awareness of this unique terroir has led to the single AOC wines, making it an exciting time to further explore this lesser-known region. Eight wines (including a sparkling and a well-aged bottle) from seven different soil types, hosted by the engaging and informed Michael Wheeler.

Friday April 20, 5-7:30 pm. $12
