A blend of Cab Sauvignon, Merlot, Cab Franc, and Petit Verdot & aged for 22 months in French oak (76% new). Deep Ruby with complex aromas of red and black fruits, and spicy notes of earthy herb scents. On the palate flavors of currants, cherries and wild blackberries and cacao. Firm structured tannins, well balanced with acidity, long finish ending with notes of leather and a gentle mineral essence which gave this wine a silky ending.

Awesome nose, awesome fruit and minerals. Smooth tannins. Delicious all around. Smooth velvety finish that lingers forever. Highly recommend.

Deep ruby - almost purple - hue with tearing and staining. Nose has a lot of red and black fruit; cherry pie filling, raspberry jam, creme de cassis, ripe blackberry, nutmeg and light baking spices, white pepper, dusty cedar box, vanilla, pencil shavings, dried violets, earl grey tea, and mushrooms. Strong tannins on the palate, long, elegant finish. Deep complexity, layered character. Full-bodied. I can only imagine this wine ten years on. Classic pairing with filet mignon and white truffle sautéed mushrooms, roasted potatoes and asparagus. Vintage 2015. 14.5% ABV. Happy Anniversary @Deked1 ❤️❤️

One of my birthday wines. First time having Quintessa - wow 🤩 Very suave and velvety. Opened it before we went to dinner and came back to the hotel to drink it in the club lounge. By the time we got to it the character was on full display. Dark berry medley, menthol, clove, holiday baking spices, creme de cassis, and frothy mocha. Really good.
