Paul Golitzin, Director of Winemaking, comments:

The 2015 Quilceda Creek "Galitzine Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon is from the Red Mountain AVA. Amazingly floral and intense blackberry and cassis fruit are found in this rich wine with nuances of roasted herbs, graphite, vanilla bean, soy, cinnamon and cocoa powder. It is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Galitzine Vineyard and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Lake Wallula Vineyard added for additional complexity and aromatic lift. It was aged in 100% new French oak for 20 months. Drink 2020-2050.

Jeb Dunnuck Review

"Coming all from Red Mountain and 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Galitzine Vineyard spent 21 months in all new French Oak. Deep inky plum/purple-colored with a huge nose of blackcurrants, singed herbs, black licorice, and scorched earth, this beast of a Washington State Cabernet has building tannin, a huge mid-palate, and a great, great finish. It needs to be forgotten for 3-4 years but will keep for 2-3 decades."
Score: 98+ Pts.
