Have you ever experienced a wine so profoundly hedonistic that the bouquet alone took your breath away? Quintessa’s 97 Point Proprietary Red does just that…  One of the great crown jewels of Napa Valley’s illustrious Rutherford AVA, Quintessa’s 2015 saturates your palate in provocative blue fruits laced with spring flowers, wild lavender, mixed chocolates, iron and of course, Rutherford dust.  The 2015 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 a dozen 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 21 months in high quality oak barrels, this wine is remarkably stunning right now…

Description

 
From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Proprietary Red Wine has a very deep purple color and notes of crushed rocks, dusty earth and iron ore over blackcurrants and black cherries, plus hints of tapenade, bay leaves, underbrush and chargrill. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is bursting with densely packed, youthful black fruits, framed by finely grained tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing long and mineral laced. This was tasted as a barrel sample.”
94-96 Points
From James Suckling, “Aromas of blue fruits, blackberries, tile and lead pencil. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh, bright finish. Layered and intense with white-pepper and salt undertones. Love the finish to this racy young wine. Beautiful blue fruits! Drink in 2020 and onwards. From biodynamic grapes.”
