2008 Quilceda Creek Vintners Cabernet Sauvignon Galitzine Vineyard Red Mountain
Producer: Quilceda Creek Vintners
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Yakima Valley
95 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2011
(99% cabernet sauvignon with 1% merlot; all of the Quilceda Creek reds are aged in 100% new French oak): Complex, expressive aromas and flavors of redcurrant, minerals, menthol, smoke and tobacco. Fat, sweet and concentrated, with an almost liqueur-like ripeness to its highly concentrated, palate-saturating flavors. This savory, chewy wine finishes with huge tannins that reach the incisors and lingering notes of blueberry and minerals.
