The 2007 Quilceda Creek ‘Galitzine Vineyard’ Cabernet Sauvignon is showing marvelously at more than a decade old. On the nose this shows copious dark fruits with graphite and creme de cassis aromatics that continue to build in the glass. The palate shows a seducyitve side with moderate tannins that round out following a two hour decant. Blackberry compote, mocha, sandalwood and chocolate covered cherry flavors all combine nicely. A stunning wine now, this will continue to show well for at least another decade. Drink 2019-2019- 96

What a fantastic vintage (scored 100 points) and worth every penny. Hints of vanilla on the nose. Went perfectly with the waygu steaks we had. Couldn’t have celebrated my dad’s retirement with a better wine.

Opened in the morning finally decanted at 7 PM after first taste, still was tight. Classic Quaceda, finely grained tannins, beautiful dark fruits, mineral, slate, long finish.

Absolutely gorgeous. Very structured. Could have waited for another 10 years. Need to find more.

Epic vintage of an epic wine. I'd put this up to Screaming Eagle without hesitation. Washington Cab at its best.
