($98; 15.2% alcohol) 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.

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.

Purple-hued ruby. Spicy, new oak, white pepper, dark berries, leather, roasted coffee, sweet up front with a robust somewhat drying mid-palate, turning just a bit chewy before lingering for a medium to long finish. Decant or wait a few years. Lots of structure here.

Licorice and raisin notes on the nose. Tobacco and leather as well. Long finish. This has many years to develop. Really, really good.
