aromas offers a rich peppery soil and earth combined with garnet and currants. The palate provides a black and red fruit combination filled with berry fruits + black pepper spices linger at the tips, wonderful smooth mouthfeel and long finish

This is a magnificent wine. While all vintages are outstanding the 2005 vintage is a standout. The correct description is opulent. While it works with many dishes, (i especially enjoy it with kobe' beef)perhaps it is best enjoyed all by itself. It's a bit pricey...but worth every penny. Enjoy!

Wine Tasting NotesThe 2005 Quintessa opens with beautiful complexity, perfume and nuance on the nose. In the glass, the wine amplifies with time and a quiet entry builds to a structured, solid mid-palate with dense black fruit. Its long finish unfolds with exquisitely supple tannins and a caress of sweet fruit.

With layers of complexity, and perfumed with floral and black fruit notes, this meritage blend is not to be missed. A delicate vintage accented with opulence.

Vintage: 2005 05/18/2011

Tight and complex, with layers of spicy currant, earth, cedar, toast and anise. Firms up on the finish, with crisp acidity and mineral notes. Best from 2002 through 2010.

(Barrel tasting) Bright, rich and deeply concentrated, well-focused on vibrant currant and black cherry. Intense yet elegant, with fine, integrated tannins and a pretty aftertaste.

Smooth, rich and elegant, with black cherry, currant, plum and berryish flavors woven together with cedar, toasty oak and complex earthy flavors.

The 2001 Proprietary Red Wine (a 9,000-case blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot) reveals a dark, saturated ruby/purple color as well as a sweet nose of black currants, forest floor, cedar, and tobacco leaf characteristics. Made in an elegant, medium-bodied, Bordeaux-like style with good fruit on the attack, but high tannin in the finish, it is best consumed between 2005-2012.

Vintage: 2005 05/18/2011

Intense, vibrant and concentrated, with firm, complex currant, cedar, anise and black cherry fruit. Tightly wound, with chewy tannins, it can stand short-term cellaring. Best from 2004 through 2014.
