A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2001 Quintessa Proprietary Red Wine 750ml


External Review

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.

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 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 2005ndash;2012.

The core blend for the 2001 is 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 7% Cabernet Franc. The wine is rich, but it was disjointed and clumsy when tasted. It possesses high tannin and extract. This thick, juicy 2001 has fine potential, but it requires time in barrel to settle down. It was one of the few 2001s I tasted that was not already seamless and brilliant. However, everything in it is impressive, including its purity as well as length.

[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.
