Quintessa 2006 opens with sweet and inviting aromas of bright black fruit with red fruit
undertones. It announces itself dramatically with a full lush entry, developing into a broad,
rich and enrobing wine that coats the mouth with rich black fruit laced with a touch of mocha, licorice, sandalwood and vanilla spice. With tremendous density, concentration and ample fine tannins, this vintage is full and dramatic early and will age gracefully.
"A big, powerful wine. Shows classic Quintessa ripeness and density, with focused black cherry, currant, mocha, violet and cedar flavors articulated by firm tannins. Bone dry, this wine, from the winery's hilly estate vineyard in the northeast quadrant of Rutherford, will develop beyond 2012."
"Dense inky-purple hue. Reserved scents of black cherry and cassis with a hint of iodine. Ripe flavors of black cherry and raspberry. Dominant tannins and hints of pencil lead and leather accent the lingering close."
The Wine News
"This vintage of Quintessa is savory and dark, yielding little beyond the sense of compressed black-cherry skins, a tannic character that melds with saline minerality. The edges of the structure are perceptible, but not what fills them in. This needs several years of bottle age to show itself more completely; it should develop well over the next six to eight years."

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...Read More About Cabernet Sauvignon
