The finest vintage ever for this cuvee, the utterly spellbinding 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Galitzine Vineyard is 100% 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! (JD)
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. (ST)
