I would pay serious money just to SMELL this wine, let alone drink it! The first time I tried it, it took me ten minutes of swirling and sniffing before I allowed myself to taste it. I was overwhelmed by the complexity and beauty of the nose - couldn't get enough of it. One of the best wines I have come across. Elegant, complexity in flavor and aromas - extremely BIG, yet balanced. The finish lingers for a minute and longer. Chip in with some friends and buy a bottle - It's fantastic!

The nose was dark and seductive with black chocolate covered cherries, candied orange, mocha, vanilla and cola. On the palate, I found black currant and dark chocolate in a wave of mouth coating and seductive fruit. A hint of tannin lingered into its long finish. I could see this wine hitting its pinnacle in another year or two.

After an hour in decanter this wine showed a dark shroud of rich black currant jam with vanillin oak, gram cracker crust and a bit of detectable heat. On the palate, this wine showcased a velvety full body with dark black fruits, allspice and molasses which led to a slightly bitter finish that stayed fresh on the palate for an easy minute with blackberry fruit.

Gorgeous! Combines concentration with depth and layers of fruit, spice, earth and suppleness.

Appealing for its caressing fruit and supple tannins. Lets the currant- and anise-laced flavors glide across the palate, offering good depth and ending with a complex, persistent finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Dr... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2004 Quintessa Proprietary Red Wine 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Harvest Dates: September 9 - October 1, 2004 Skin contact: 30 days Time in oak: 18 months Oak Regime: 100% French oak from diverse forests north of the Loire River with emphasis on tight grain. Release Date: June 2007 "Due to a very concentrated vintage, the 2004 Quintessa takes a departure into the realm of power, allthe while maintaining the finesse and elegance that have been the signature of the wine from the Quintessa Estate since its inception. An opaque jet black robe leads to a bold attack, transitioning into a weighty layered mid-palette of infinite complexity. The finish is supple and round with good length and exquisitely forged tannins."
