Quintessa Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES: �The 2005 Quintessa opens with beautiful complexity, perfume and nuance on the nose. In the glass, the wine evolves 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.� Quintessa Winery Background (Below)
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
Very complex deep wine. Extremely well balanced, bit heavy on the french oak, leads to a cedar like finish, can't wait for this in 10 years...
Great wine. wonderful balance. good fruit. Lots of oak, but I think it will fade nicely with age
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!

External Reviews for Quintessa Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
Tough-edged, with firm, austere, dry and chalky tannins, but also a rich, dense, minerally core of currant and black cherry, ending with a dash of leather. Drink now through 2010. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
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.

This elegant 2000 makes a lasting impression, for its zesty dark fruit rather than for its size. Firm tannins check the heady density, though not the delicious flavor. Green herb accents develop with air, as layers of flavor will develop with time.
Quite ripe and oaky, made in a big, impressive style. Knocks you out with the density and concentration of its blackcurrant, dark chocolate and coffee flavors that are well-oaked. Completely dry, and with a tart, espresso-like bitterness, this beauty is guaranteed to age, with its firm tannins. Now through 2015.
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.
