Drinking at its apex. Sexy on the nose, Cab Franc shows them merlot peeks out. Sleek and opulent from first to last sip.

The 2015 Quintessa Red Wine is a gorgeous effort by the talented Rebekah Wineburg. Immediately drawing appeal once in the glass, the wine shows a really nice range of primary aromatics, from blue and black fruits to shades of tar and pipe tobacco that all sing in harmony. The palate is dense but has a weightless elegance as this effortlessly glides across the mid-plate. Rich dark chocolate covered espresso bean and boysenberry torte flavors combine with the tar and graphite tones once on the mouth. Beautifully textured and balanced, the 2015 Quintessa Red Wine is glorious in its youth but could benefit from a few years of bottle age to even more fully evolve. Drink 2021-2040- 95

09 ' Quintessa Cabernet. Lacking complexity. Nice bottle of wine. Is it worth the money? - at Nick's Fishmarket, Maui

Still evolving. Big red purple fruit but The Merlot softens it up. Still a bit sharp on the finish. Drinking too young.

2014 vintage. Beautifully balanced in a more understated style than many others in Napa. Fantastic elegant and complex wine with a true sense of place. Grand vin.
