2015 Quintessa  (Rutherford) 93

Forward, deeply colored, lush, round, open wine, with layers of plushly textured dark fruits, vanilla, chocolate, licorice and dark cherries. This is already quite easy to drink.

2014 Quintessa  (Rutherford) 92

Oaky, but once past the sweet oak, the wine is full bodied, rich, deep and concentrated. Dark in color, with round textures and an open style, it is easy to enjoy the dark fruits, licorice, chocolate and black cherry notes.

A nice Bordeaux styled wine from Napa focusing on elegance, soft textures and smooth textures in a forward, medium/full bodied, ripe, sweet, fresh, fruit filled style.

2010 Quintessa  (Rutherford) 91

Full bodied, polished and round in texture, this blackberry and cassis filled wine pops with its spicy berries, licorice and coffee bean nose. A year or two will soften the tannin and add more complexity to the wine.

Spicy red berries, vanilla, smoke and earthy black cherry notes open to a forward, polished, soft, medium/full bodied wine that ends with a jammy blackberry finish.

2007 Quintessa  (Rutherford) 90

Oaky, ripe, jammy berries, licorice, medium/full bodied with a jammy finish that displayed a touch of heat. I would not age this wine, as it seems to lack the stuffing for much development.

2006 Quintessa  (Rutherford) 87

Light and starting to fade, the fruit is taking on a tart quality. Drink up.
