2006 Quintessa Rutherford Red

SKU #500464
Aromas of dark black currant fruit with undertones of raspberry, licorice and spice. On the palate, the wine delivers what the nose promises—power and refinement with a mélange of complex cassis, blackberry, mocha and sandalwood spice flavors. A broad, rich middle palate and a long finish offer a delicate balance of intensity and elegance, full fruit and supple tannins. This vintage will gain complexity in the bottle and age gracefully for a decade or more.

WINE ENTHUSIAST RATING: 92
WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: 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.
WINE NEWS RATING: 92
WINE NEWS REVIEW: Dense inky-purple hue. Reserved scents of black cherry and cassis with a hint of iodine. Ripe flavors of black cherry and raspberry. Dominant tannins and hints of pencil lead and leather accent the lingering close.
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.
