The color was super dark. The nose reminded me of Bordeaux. It had some cassis, and blackberry. The palate showed a medium to heavy weight wine with elagant multilayered fruit profile that is somewhat quiet it it's approach, but constantly delivers the goods. Tar, anise, leather, cocoa, and cassis wrapped around clean and intricate tannins.... All this with a cherry on top! (black cherry that is). I like this ones peigree. A long finish and I was seeking out the decanter for more.

This is my second time tasting. Consistent notes. Bordeaux like. Smooth intergrated tannins. Nice weight. Deep complex fruit of dark berries. Cassis. Understated oak. Long 30 aftertaste. This is the best Quintessa I have ever had. Not quite sure its worth $100.

Rich, dense and opulent, with plush black cherry, plum and currant flavors that are sharply focused. Long, saturated aftertaste.. Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2002 Quintessa Proprietary Red Wine 750ml

An elegant, polished red, with a complex and neatly focused beam of currant, black cherry, spice and light, toasty oak, ending in a long, rich finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Best from 2000 through 2006. 2,000 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 1995 Quintessa Proprietary Red Wine 1500ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Harvest Dates: September 16, 2002 - October 5, 2002 Skin contact: 30 days Time in oak: 20 months Type of oak: 100% New, French oak from diverse forests north of the Loire River;emphasis on tight grain wood. Release date: September 1, 2005 The bouquet of this wine is a rich mélange of floral and black fruits. A delicate brush stroke from Titian, the accent is on opulence tempered by finesse. A bold attack, that astonishes with its richness, and then a seamless segue to an ultra ripe, integrated and well textured mid-palette. A brooding monolithic mass of bold velvet robed tannins, the assurance of graceful aging leading to a finish that lingers and flirts endlessly. The paragon of the Quintessa Vineyard.
