SKU C0277


The 2012 Quilceda Creek Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is from the Red Mountain AVA. The Galitzine Vineyard is a partnership between our family and the Holmes family of the highly acclaimed Ciel du Cheval Vineyard. The 2012 displays incredible depth, with aromas and flavors of dark black fruits, ginger, soy, smoke, vanilla and minerals. Aged in 100% new French Oak for 20 months, it is 97% Cabernet Sauvignon from Galitzine Vineyard and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon from Wallula Vineyard, for additional complexity and dimension.

Wine AdvocateAnother classic Cabernet Sauvignon from the Golitzin's, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Galitzine Vineyard comes from the dry, windswept Red Mountain AVA and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. It's a big, structured effort that offers lots of minerality and dusty earth in its blackcurrants, black cherry liqueur, smoked earth, licorice and charred-meat-driven bouquet. Firm, focused and tight, this has closed down substantially since I tasted it from barrel, yet has serious concentration, lots of tannin and a great finish. It needs 4-5 years to integrate all its components, and should evolve gracefully through 2035.
