Quintessa Red Bordeaux Blend Rutherford 1998
The 1998 has an outstanding structure and mouthfeel with layered bouquet of bright fruit and hints of floral notes. Aromatic cedar with a note of mint and cocoa can are also present. There is a seamless texture to this wine created by soft tannins and a long finish. Perhaps the vintage it most resembles is the supremely elegant 1994, Quintessa’s Inaugural release.
