Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Galitzine Vineyard 2008, 750mL (WA98) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Galitzine Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2008
Region: US
Appellation: Columbia Valley

WA98
Rated 98 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2008 Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon contains 1% Merlot. It proffers a brooding aromatic array of toasty oak, Asian spices, incense, a hint of sage, violets, and assorted black fruits. More structured than the preceding wines, `No doubting it`s Red Mountain` say the Golitzins, it has plenty of ripe tannin more than balanced by loads of succulent fruit, exceptional density, richness and power. Give it 5-6 years and drink it from 2016 to 2033.` -- Jay Miller in the Wine Advocate.Additional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `At Quilceda Creek it`s the same old story, great wines made by unpretentious people. The Golitzins decline to raise prices because they feel loyalty to the people who supported them from the beginning and who might not be able to afford connoisseur/collector pricing. As for the latest wines, they regard 2008 as `a regular vintage with no issues; you could pick at your leisure`. They are considerably more excited by the 2009 vintage which they describe as `wines with tons of aroma?really good` which, given their understated manner, I interpret to mean really terrific. For this tasting, the 2009s were all tasted from barrel samples.`
