Appealing for its caressing fruit and supple tannins. Lets the currant- and anise-laced flavors glide across the palate, offering good depth and ending with a complex, persistent finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. 8,000 cases made.

Just a gorgeous Rutherford Cabernet blend. Raspberry, Red Currant all over the place, sweet,soft tannins, expertly structured - a smooth delicious wine that was aptly suited for the meal. Decanted ~2 hr before. Espresso notes, oak, but not overwhelmingly. Loved it, as good as I was hoping it would be.

Big wine for Quintessa. Substantially better than their 03. From a half bottle the wines needs a few more years

About This Producer


In 2002, Valeria and Agustin Huneeus' dream of the quintessential wine estate - one vineyard that produces one singular estate wine - was realized with the opening of the winery at Quintessa.

Quintessa is truly a "winemaker's winery." The design facilitates a gravity-flow process and a state-of-the-art winery specifically tailored with fermenters and tanks sized to match the diverse blocks in the Quintessa vineyard. Additionally, the winery at Quintessa is outfitted with the latest in winemaking technology. French oak and stainless steel fermenters stand tall along the winery's front wall, providing the winemaking team with a choice of characteristics adding complexity and subtlety to the blend.

Quintessa, like all classic wines of the world, bears the same name as the vineyard from which it is made. The winery's goal is to produce the best expression of this extraordinary vineyard each and every year.
