Have you ever experienced a wine so profoundly hedonistic that the bouquet alone gave you goose bumps? Quintessa’s new 98 Point Proprietary Red does just that…  One of the great crown-jewels of Napa Valley’s illustrious Rutherford AVA, Quintessa’s 2016 saturates your palate in warm blueberries laced in spring flowers, candied violets, cigar box, dark chocolate and of course, Rutherford dust.  The 2016 was given a voice by one of my favorite winemakers, Rebekah Wineburg, who honed her skills at Rudd and Buccella before becoming winemaker at Quintessa…

Birthed from sixteen biodynamically farmed vineyard blocks located on the Eastern edge of Rutherford, each small plot is farmed, harvested and fermented individually so that the unique nuances of the land shine through. The grapes were gently crushed on the winery roof and make their way to the fermentation room below, utilizing a gravity-flow method.   After 20 months in high quality oak barrels, this wine is remarkably stunning right now…

“… Very deep purple-black in color, it comes bounding out of the glass like a pedigree pup with exuberant notions of crème de cassis, warm blueberries and black cherries with hints of redcurrants, kirsch, candied violets, crushed rocks, cigar box and fallen leaves plus a waft of truffles. Full, rich and beautifully laced with layers of floral notes and fragrant earth, the profound black and blue fruits build slowly in the mouth, achieving great energy and depth with a beautiful velvety frame, finishing long and perfumed.” 
97+ Points
Phenomenal aromas of crushed berries, forest fruit, mushrooms and iron. Medium to full body, with layers of soft and refined tannins that follow through to a beautiful finish. Extremely long and refined. This shows depth and structure with balance and harmony. Hard not to open the bottle now and drink it, but it appears to be closing down now. Needs four to five years to show it all.
