(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.
