Quintessa 2013 – Rutherford, Napa Valley

The nose is powerful, elegant and offers a fine unctuosity. It reveals notes of very ripe cassis, black plum and small notes of crushed cassis associated with touches of ripe strawberry, very ripe red berries as well as hints of violet, graphite and subtle hints of Cuben pepper. The mouth is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, concentration, richness, a very fine acidulous frame as well as unctuosity. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of crushed cassis, very ripe wild blackberry and small notes of very ripe strawberry associated with touches of raspberry, small red berries as well as hints of violet, Cuben pepper and Bourbon vanilla. Good length.
