($135) Good bright, deep ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of black raspberry, loam and chocolatey oak; liqueur-like but not cooked. Broad, dense and sweet, with lush, ripe black raspberry and chocolate flavors. Finishes with broad, dusty, oak-driven tannins. A bit chunky and very ripe and sweet for this bottling: more classic Napa Valley in style than most past vintages.

The 2007 looks to be one of Quintessa-s stronger efforts in a number of years. Dark ruby/purple, with sweet black currant, cherry, and loamy soil notes intermixed with some subtle spice box and background oak, this wine is rich and medium to full-bodied, with round, silky tannins, and an attractive set of aromatics. Very accessible and drinkable now, it should age nicely for 15 or more years.

After decanting about an hour, this bordeaux blend styled wine opened up nicely. Tannins were like drinking liquid velvet. Dark fruits and a hint of cocoa lingered on my tounge. I really enjoyed this wine and will be looking for more.

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.
