Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

(cabernet sauvignon with 25% merlot and 5% cabernet franc) Bright ruby-red. Complex aromas of currant, black cherry, dark raspberry, dark chocolate, graphite, tobacco, espresso, mocha and mint. Supple and sweet on entry, then quite fresh in the middle, with Bordeaux-like flavors of currant, mocha, minerals and tar. Not a large-scaled wine but nicely balanced. Finishes with big, mouthcoating tannins and finishing notes of charry oak and dark chocolate.

Translucent red colored wine. Highly aromatic in the nose with attractive vanilla, licorice, dark cherry candied fruit, and mint. Quite rich with good density. Lots of fruit flavors with dark chocolate highlights. This wine has really put on weight and substantially improved over the last year. If one can look past the number on the label then one will enjoy this very fine wine.

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.
