    August 15, 2019 - Pop and pour and followed for several hours. Needs at least 2-4 hours of air. Initial whiff had a lot of wood and mocha milkshake going on, but with some air settled into a nice nose of blue and black berries, a layer of raspberries and red cherries, herbs, earth, dark cherries, spices, iodine, and a little new leather (with extended air). Black cherries, blackberries, blueberries, red cherries, earth, a little green herbs, alcohol spiciness, tart cherries, some graphite, oak, and black licorice on the palate. Moderate acidity, integrating, but still present tannins, long finish. Really nice bottle. Yeah, there's a lot of alcohol and oak, but there's some nice freshness as well, and there are enough layers of flavor to keep it interesting.

    July 10, 2019 - 5 hour decant. Smooth, fine grain tannin- green, savory herb, touch chocolate raspberry jam. Tried next to 07 cv cab - though it showed greater sense of place, though less complex.

    May 11, 2019 - Drank alongside an 07 Hillside Select for Tom's 47th @ Ascend Prime. On first pour / In direct comparison, the QC was fairly tannic & less plump around the edges: early score 95. But as the night wore on, the original separation of the Shafer [early score 99] began to normalize -- and by end of night, both wines had met in the middle: late scores 97. In the end, the QC never did quite carry the voluptuous air that the Shafer held. So while amazing in its own right - a bit outplayed by the bruiser from the south.

    March 29, 2019 - Decanted this for 2 hours the rebottled and brought to our friends house to see their new remodeled kitchen. They had a Josh Cab open so we had a glass of that first. I then poured the Galitzine and I was a bit shocked that it didn’t blow away the Josh which was 1/6 the price. The others didn’t seem all that impressed as well and beside my wife didn’t know the pedigree of the QC. Yes the QC had more depth and finesse but some times you wonder about overall QPR of some of the wines you collect.
