More Vintages and Sizes of Quintessa - Red:
Author: Robert Parker
This beautiful estate just off the Silverado Trail in Rutherford has turned out a spicy, elegant, understated 2006 that is very good, but does not ratchet up the level of performance enough to call it exciting. Dark plum and black currant fruits are intermixed with some weedy tobacco notes and subtle earthiness. The wine is well-made, restrained, and best drunk over the next decade.

Mgnum - could have used a few more years maturity but the flavor profile opened up after 1+ hours of breathing but was still limited

Lots of dark currant, plum, and berry on the nose. Smoked wood and some herb as well. Fruit forward and with high tannins that grip the backend. Good length as well. Restrained French oak on both the nose and the palate. Ripe fruit (cherry) and herby notes come out in the finish.
