Galitzine Vineyard is the source of our vineyard designated Cabernet Sauvignon showcasing the incredible depth,
richness and consistency that can be grown in the Red Mountain AVA. It is a partnership between our family and
the Holmes family of the highly acclaimed Ciel du Cheval Vineyard. The high density vineyard (2074 plants per acre)
was planted in 2001 and 2002 entirely with Clone 8 Cabernet Sauvignon on windblown Hezel over Warden soils. These
deep sandy loam soils are ideal for root development and deficit irrigation, leading to excellent vineyard uniformity.
Since its inception, the Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has averaged an incredibly high 96.6 points from the
over its first 8 vintages.
