Food Pairings for Quinteba Rutherford Napa Valley
Quintessa 2008 opens with fragrant plum and raspberry aromas with notes of cola, clove and white chocolate rounding out a delicate perfume. The wine enters the palate with sweet red currant and plum fruit flavors and a silky mouthfeel. As it coats the mouth, concentrated dark fruit flavors emerge with succulent balanced tannins, a subtle impression of well-integrated oak and sweetness from the rich, ripe fruit. This vintage will gain complexity in the bottle and age gracefully for a decade and more. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Carmenère. Alcohol 14.2%. Not yet reviewed; 2007 vintage rated 96 points by Connoisseurs' Guide.
