more red fruit earth and spice than on the 2005 vintage. the palate offers red currants, hints of spice, jam and blackberries. More concentration of fruit and has amazing aging potential.

The flagship wine of the Huneeus Family of Napa Valley, Quintessa is a blend of Bordeaux variety grapes from their estate vineyard right in Napa's Rutherford Bench region. Wine Enthusiast Magazine rated it 92 points and said "A big, powerful wine. Shows classic Quintessa ripeness and density, with focused black cherry, currant, mocha, violet and cedar flavors articulated by firm tannins. Bone dry, this wine, from the winery’s hilly estate vineyard in the northeast quadrant of Rutherford, will develop beyond 2012."

Winemaker's Notes - Charles Thomas"Quintessa 2006 opens with sweet and inviting aromas of bright black fruit with red fruit undertones. It announces itself dramatically with a full lush entry, developing into a broad, rich and enrobing wine that coats the mouth with rich black fruit laced with a touch of mocha, licorice, sandalwood and vanilla spice. With tremendous density, concentration and ample fine tannins, this vintage is full and dramatic early and will age gracefully."
