Occasional Wine Note: This is simply put, one of the best wines in the world against any standard. We have visited this picturesque vineyard a couple of times and always leave awe inspired. The people, the landscape, the tasting experience, and of course the wine. A bottle of Quintessa is part of every Thanksgiving and just about every other special occasion in our lives. It really encapsulates the beauty and complexity of the Rutherford viticultural area from nose to palate to finish. Keep it in your cellar until that special occasion arises. It will NEVER fail to wow even the most discerning of palates.

    This is a winemaker's master class in blending and understanding of a long-standing site. Dried herb, cedar and pencil shavings accent lifted red fruit and brilliant acidity on the palate, with a supple yet still youthfully grippy texture that is framed by structured, graceful tannins. Enjoy from 2029–2039.

    So much earth and spice with walnut and wet earth. Like fog laying over the valley in the morning. Black fruit. Medium-to full-bodied with super-fine tannins that are long and persistent, with graceful progression and length on the palate. So long, with real definition. September 2022 release. From biodynamically grown grapes. Hard not to drink now, but will age wonderfully.
