2007 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Galitzine Vineyard

See wine details

Winery: "We are proud to release the Quilceda Creek 2007 //Galitzine Vineyard// Cabernet Sauvignon from the Red Mountain A.V.A. The //Galitzine Vineyard// is a partnership between our family and the Holmes family of the highly acclaimed //Ciel du Cheval Vineyard//. This high-density vineyard (2074 plants/acre) was planted in 2001 and 2002 with Clone 8 Cabernet Sauvignon on windblown Hezel over Warden soils. These deep, consistent, sandy loam soils are ideal for root development, vine health and vineyard uniformity. The 2007 offers intense aromas and flavors of Wild Mountain blackberries muddled with chocolate truffles, violet pastille, pencil lead, sage and minerals. Due to increasing vine age coupled with a wonderful growing season, this is the finest example of the Galitzine terroir yet. Aged in 100% new French oak for 22 months, it is a blend of 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot. All of our 2007's will have large drinking windows because of their lush textures and sensual, liqueur like personalities. Drink Now – 2040."
