Deep garnet red. Dark nose with layers of spices, cocoa, black cherries and dust. Medium tannins (6/10) and well integrated. Medium plus to full bodied with notes of anise, black currants, cinnamon and dark cocoa. Drinking very well right now. Drink till 2018.

Sometimes you need a Napa Cab, great vintage, aged nicely, could've waited another 10 years, wild berries, tobacco, black olive, 2005

2014 vintage. Blend of valley floor (mostly Coombsville with Rutherford) and sourced fruit from mountain AVAs (Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder). Bold and powerful with juicy black fruits, slightly austere tannic structure and good length. Should age very well. Very good value for Napa standards.

Another vintage of yawn. Great nose but a short finish, black fruit, lots of green pepper and black tea. The alcohol is a little out of balance too. If it were $20 it would be fine. But it's not.

Quick finish, lacks bold bouquet, too watery. Enjoyable but save for less unimpressive use

Needs long lead time in decanter to open up. Once open, great dark fruit flavored with a note of cocoa on the long finish.

What?! 8.9??? Has everyone lost their mind?!
It's like someone scrubbed a suckling and roasted it all day in the sexy earth and then put tapenade on it.

Good stuff. Purple in the glass with aromas of baked fruit, herbs and vanilla. Classic Californian Cabernet flavours of jam, winter spice and berry fruits. Lovely smooth finish with some soft tannins and great lingering flavour. We'd all love to buy Quintessa every weekend but you need a strong budget for that, this is made by the same family with a more approachable price tag, enjoy.
