20 years in and this wine displays few signs of gray hairs. On the nose, notes of butterscotch and light oak.
The palette is dense and well balanced, with hints of lemons, quince and caramel. Close your eyes and you could be in burgundy.
Make it a wonderful 2017, peeps! 🍾😃 — 3 years ago
So...I am officially out of daily drinkers and this one came into play. This falls within our category between think twice 🤔 & don't touch 🙅🏼. @Larissa Mitchell gave me the go ahead b/c she didn't care for the timeshare like presentation (& pressure) we got to purchase at the end of the tour. Quintessa makes a fine wine - no salesmanship needed.

Lastly, Chicago Cubs let's get some runs!! Opening a good bottle of wine for luck!! #iaintafraidofnogoat
TN - The nose is strong with cassis and Rutherford dust. Makes me feel like I am laying on the side of the Silverado Trail. Decanted 1.5 hours and it needed it. Very silky on the tongue and dark ruby color. — 3 years ago
Started decanting this morning as encouragement to start the 🦃 day prep work. Absolutely outstanding! Each hour getting better and better. TN: powerful oak full of blackberry fruits - one of my favorite wineries and honestly this didn't need a decant but enjoying the journey. #chriscarpenterisgod @cardinalewinery #thanksgivingwine — 3 years ago
