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. The winemaker notes that Quintessa 2008 opens with fragrant plum and raspberry aromas with notes of cola, clove and white chocolate rounding out a delicate perfume. The wine enters the palate with sweet red currant and plum fruit flavors and a silky mouthfeel. As it coats the mouth, concentrated dark fruit flavors emerge with succulent balanced tannins, a subtle impression of well-integrated oak and sweetness from the rich, ripe fruit. This vintage will gain complexity in the bottle and age gracefully for a decade and more. 93 points in the Connoisseurs Guide.

Doesn't seem quite up there with previous vintages, although it's rich enough, with blackberry and cherry jam fruit accented with lots of new French oak. Tastes flashy, an easy wine to savor, but the softness and directness suggest it's best enjoyed ... Wine Enthusiast.
