A big, powerful wine. Shows classic Quintessa ripeness and density, with focused black cherry, currant, mocha, violet and cedar flavors articulated by firm tannins. Bone dry, this wine, from the winery’s hilly estate vineyard in the northeast quadrant of Rutherford, will develop beyond 2012.
This vintage of Quintessa is savory and dark, yielding little beyond the sense of compressed black-cherry skins, a tannic character that melds with saline minerality. The edges of the structure are perceptible, but not what fills them in. This needs several years of bottle age to show itself more completely; it should develop well over the next six to eight years.
A Cabernet-based proprietary wine not labelled as Cabernet Sauvignon. Very tannic and closed, yet with a bright, intense cherry/berry aroma and palate core suggest a promising future. 17/20 (LM)
