Quintessa Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

$179.99

Quintessa is one of Napa Valley's most collective Cabernets year-in and year-out and the 2011 is no exception.  Extremely limited. 96 Points Robert Parker  "The 2013 Proprietary Red Wine has always been good, but I think they have re-positioned themselves at a much higher pinnacle with the 2013. This is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend but has important component parts such as Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot from their gorgeous vineyards just off the Silverado Trail in Rutherford. The wine has a dense bluish/purple color and a beautiful nose of black raspberries, blueberries, lead pencil shavings, and touches of oak and spring flowers. The complexity of the fragrance is followed by a wine with terrific body, stunning purity, wonderful balance, and great depth and richness. This is certainly the most profound Quintessa made to date and should evolve gracefully for at least 20-25 years...Quintessa is a magnificent estate in Rutherford, and this is the flagship wine of proprietor Agustin Huneeus."

These 2013's will be popular with the kids but they are too ripe for me. Luckily no R/S, but super big.

Still a baby. Complex and layered nose. Immediate dark berries (black currant and cassis) then red fruit of cherries and a hint of earth/dirt. Similar complexity on the palate with grippy tannins. Really good juice!!

We had the 2013 Vintage on 5/23/20. A terrific wine with depth and balance. A smooth mouth feel. Black fruit, cedar and graphite on the bouquet. Blackberry, cherry and vanilla on the palate. A great representative of a top notch Napa Cab.

Hmm. The 2014 was outstanding. This is overripe, not as balanced, and a little hot for the $. Disappointed.

Rutherford dust is a must! Did you know they were bio-dynamic? Me either. Who cares it's good! It's young so a little tight but good dark fruit not jammy at all good balance. Little wet stone. Get involved!

Massive fruit. Dark deep burnt oak, I'm picking up hints of black pepper cinnamon...the finish is luxurious, long and elegant. The color is deep ruby red and screams mega wine. Simply gorgeous. 30 min or more decant time required.....
