2014 Quilceda Creek Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon | Red Mountain Washington 750ml


100% Cabernet Sauvignon
97% Cabernet Sauvignon from Galitzine Vineyard and 3 % Cabernet Sauvignon from Wallula Vineyard aged in 100% New French Oak for 21 months. The 2014 Quilceda Creek Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is from the Red Mountain AVA. It is an exotic and rich wine filled with aromas and flavors of blackberry and black cherry fruit with nuances of chocolate, forest floor and minerals. | Paul Golitzin for Quilceda Creek

The finest vintage ever for this cuvee, the utterly spellbinding 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Galitzine Vineyard is [100%] sic Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that was brought up in new barrels. Slightly deeper and richer than the Columbia Valley Cabernet, its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a smorgasbord of graphite, crushed violets, crushed rocks, cassis and dark chocolate. With incredible richness, ultra-fine tannin, no hard edges and a stacked mid-palate, give this crazy good red 2-3 years of cellaring and enjoy over the following two decades! Bravo to the team at Quilceda! | 100 points, Jeb Dunnuck for Wine Advocate

...the aromatics are loaded with dark fruits including candied black cherry, black raspberry cordial, Hoisin sauce, creme de cassis and Turkish coffee with hints of crushed mint. These gorgeous aromatics make you sit at your glass and think of this hot vintage and vineyard site which is really coming into its own. The mouthfeel and texture to this stunning Cabernet wine is simply incredible. The mid-palate weight is simply massive and this juncture and is like nothing that I have sampled in the past year from Washington... | 99 points, Owen Bargreen for Washington Wine Blog

Bright ruby-red. Slightly more port-like on the nose than the flagship Cabernet, offering scents of black cherry, licorice, and dark chocolate (Red Mountain is typically a few degrees hotter than Champoux Vineyard in Horse Heaven Hills, notes Golitzin). Compellingly plush, broad and sweet, conveying a bulletproof quality to its highly concentrated cassis and licorice flavors. The tannins here are slightly less noble than those of the flagship Cabernet, but I'm quibbling. This stunner finishes strong and long, with steadily building fruit and no loss of shape. | 95 points, Stephen Tanzer for Vinous
