The 2015 Quilceda Creek Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon includes 5% of Cabernet from the Lake Wallula Vineyard blended in and is every bit as compelling as the 2015 Columbia Valley bottling, as this wine has become quite divergent to its big brother. Displaying an inky color in the glass, this takes on a more masculine, dark fruit profile than the Columbia Valley bottling, which shows a touch of lifted rose petals that creep in. Aromatics of creosote, blackberry compote, black tea, Asian spices and crème de cassis aromatics generously coagulate in the glass. The palate shows absolutely wonderful terroir with marvelous intensity and verve. Vibrant acidity marks this wine as flavors of black tea, tar, crème de cassis and anise are wrapped around ripe dark fruits. This has wonderful grip and precision through the finsh, marvelously showcasing what is one of the top vineyards in the state.
