2007 Quilceda Creek "Galitzine Vineyard" Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1062821 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon contains 1% Petit Verdot. It offers up a splendid bouquet of toasty new oak, earth notes, espresso, incense, blackberry, and plum. A bit more structured than the Palengat cuvee, it is slightly denser, layered, and intense. This very lengthy effort will benefit from 5-7 years of cellaring and will offer a drinking window extending from 2015 to 2037. (JM) Inner quote mark (8/2010)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full medium ruby. Lovely aromatic lift to the aromas of berries, pepper and cocoa powder. Lush on entry, then less sweet and rich in the middle-more muscular-than the flagship Cabernet Sauvignon. There's impressive density to the crushed berry and graphite flavors, but today this solidly structured wine's substantial mounting tannins are a bit youthfully aggressive. A classic example of Red Mountain Cabernet, in need of at least several years of bottle aging and built for a long life in bottle. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (12/2010)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a strikingly pure expression of single-vineyard, Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Focused and tight, it is extremely dense and textural, with a mix of cassis and coffee. Some of the minerality of the neighboring Ciel du Cheval vineyard is just beginning to show in the fruit from these young vines as well. (PG) Inner quote mark (9/2010)
