USA - Washington - Columbia Valley - Red Mountain

Red Cabernet Sauvignon
Producer Notes

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.

IWC 93-96

Issue Issue 135

Bright ruby-red. Multidimensional nose offers blackberry, graphite, violet and dried herbs; boasts floral high tones the 2004 can't match. Wonderfully suave and silky, with superb depth and penetrating sweetness to its black fruit flavors. A step up in the finesse of its grain from the 2004 version. The compelling rising finish features huge but ripe, horizontal tannins that are supported by strength of fruit and superb persistence.

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Galitzine Vineyard comes from the fifth leaf of this estate vineyard and in this vintage contains 4.5% Merlot. The wine was aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak. Opaque purple-colored, its distinctive aromatics leap from the glass. Toasty oak, scorched earth, a hint of truffle, black cherry, black raspberry, and blackberry liqueur aromas are quite mesmerizing. On the palate, this sizable effort is firm, full-bodied, and structured, demanding 6-8 years of cellaring. It falls a bit short of the flagship Cabernet Sauvignon in terms of complexity but bear in mind that this is still a very young vineyard. It should be hitting its stride by 2015 and remain at that level through 2035.

Explosive blueberry and jam nose. Incredibly balanced mouth feel. Supple flavors of dark fruit and well integrated oak. Long, long, long finish.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
