2012 Quilceda Creek Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon | Red Mountain Washington 750ml


97% Cabernet Sauvignon from Galitzine Vineyard and 3 % Cabernet Sauvignon from Wallula Vineyard aged in 100% New French Oak for 20 months. Displays incredible depth, with aromas and flavors of dark black fruits, ginger, soy, smoke, vanilla and minerals. Quilceda Creek Notes

...As this opens in the glass it releases beautifully perfumed aromas and flavors of dark cherries, cassis, raspberry compote along with mocha, graphite, anise and pretty floral accents of rose petals. The viscous mouthfeel is rich and concentrated, backed by moderate tannins, ending with a long, mouth coating finish. International Wine Report, 98 points

...Bright, dark ruby. Very refined, high-pitched aromas of blackberry, cassis, boysenberry and violet; smells lighter than the flagship Cabernet and more peppery. Dense, silky and weightless in the mouth, conveying a refined texture to its very intense flavors of cassis, licorice pastille and dark chocolate...Finishes with a sexy cocoa powder quality that must be from the Taransaud barrels. Stephen Tanzer for Vinous, 94+ Points

Another classic Cabernet Sauvignon from the Golitzins, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Galitzine Vineyard comes from the dry, windswept Red Mountain AVA and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. It's a big, structured effort that offers lots of minerality and dusty earth in its blackcurrants, black cherry liqueur, smoked earth, licorice and charred-meat-driven bouquet. Firm, focused and tight, this has closed down substantially since I tasted it from barrel, yet has serious concentration, lots of tannin and a great finish.
