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!

Bright red-ruby. Musky, rather exotic aromas of dark raspberry, blackberry, woodsmoke and spicy oak, complicated by a mineral pungency. Fat, sweet and lush, with deep flavors of dark berries and truffle. At once classically dry and pliant, with a fatter texture than most past releases of this wine. The finish features big, broad, dusty tannins; good building length; and a note of Rutherford dust.

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.

Elegant and supple-textured, with earthy currant, mineral, sage and dusty berry flavors that end with a touch of herb and cedary oak. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2015. Tasted twice, with consistent n... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2005 Quintessa Proprietary Red Wine 750ml

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.

This luxury cuvée produced from a single-vineyard is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon. It is made in an exceptionally restrained, polite style that is meant to emulate a Bordeaux, but may go too far in terms of delicacy and subtlety. It is an attractive wine, with a dark ruby color, and a moderately intense nose of red/black currants, and spicy new oak. In the mouth, it is elegant and medium-bodied, with good richness, moderate tannin, and a pure finish. Subtlety is a worthy goal in winemaking, but this example may err to far in that direction. Already supple and velvety-textured enough to drink now, it should age nicely for 7-10 years.

Quintessa the wine is a blend of the best vineyard lots of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc all grown on the estate's 170 acres of vineyards in the heart of Rutherford. The winery's stone facade is combined with natural landscaping of native plants and oak trees to create a subtle presence amidst the diverse terrain. The natural design facilitates a gentle, gravity flow system from the moment the grapes arrive at the winery. Once the wine is in barrel, it will age in caves that have been dug into the hillside behind the winery.

The 1999, an 8,000-case blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, is a delicate, elegant, restrained, polite effort with pretty red and black currant flavors intermixed with licorice, soil overtones, and subtle spicy oak. It is neither big nor flamboyant. This is a polished, exceptionally refined offering, particularly for a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Although somewhat understated, one has to respect its integrity and intention. It should age nicely for 10-15 years.
