(just the fourth leaf from these vines in the Golitzins' densely planted new cabernet vineyard on Red Mountain; the crop level here was a half-ton per acre, according to Paul Golitzin) Bright, deep ruby-red. Aromas of black fruits and licorice. Sweet, dense and fat with fruit, but with plenty of energy and the structure and focus characteristic of Red Mountain cabernet. Not as lush or silky as the flagship cabernet but offers a lovely combination of sweetness and grip, and excellent balance. In a densely packed, more masculine black fruit style, particularly in the context of this vintage here. Finishes suave and long, with lovely sweetness to its tannins. A remarkable performance for young vines. This new wine is labelled with the original spelling of the family name.

The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon "Galitzine Vineyard" comes from the fourth leaf of this estate vineyard and is the first release of the wine, made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak. Opaque purple-colored, it has a superb bouquet of pain grille, scorched earth, truffle, walnuts, black cherry, and blackberry liqueur which leaps from the glass. On the palate it is sweet and rich with layers of spicy black fruit flavors, terrific balance, and a 45+ second finish. It does not have quite the weight and depth of the flagship Cabernet but keep in mind that this is the product of a young vineyard only beginning to express its enormous potential.

A marvelous, nearly perfect Cabernet. Very approachable and delicious even without food now, with all the structure needed to show beautifully for another decade or two. Silky tannins and delicious, balanced notes of plum, cherry and just the slightest hint of tobacco and chalk meld in a smooth and subtle attack. This wine is complex, yet still "light," without the unctuous, palate staining power of some other world class cabs.

About This Producer


No Washington winery commands more attention from wine collectors than Quilceda Creek, with repeated 100-point scores and subsequent appreciating bottle value. Since 1978, the Alex Golitzin and his son Paul have been lauded for their flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, which is elevated by the Bordelais practice of declassification of up to one third of production into a second label each year. The fruit for their 4,000-case production is sourced from the finest vineyards on the far side of the Cascade Mountains, and the Golitzins are meticulous in their oversight of the viticultural practices. Driven to produce the greatest wine possible, Alex and Paul "know what they want in a wine and what to do to get it."
