An inviting nose of fresh cherries, currants, and red plum accentuate the complex aromatics of crushed wet rock, sandalwood, and clove. A bright and silky entry is immediately accompanied by a vibrant layered juicy core, presenting beautiful elegance to this wine. The finish is linger- ing yet focused, showing striking definition, balance and finesse.
An exceptional vintage with ideal weather conditions during key parts of the growing season. The year began with a moderate and dry spring followed by a classic Napa summer of warm days and cool nights. This weather put little pressure on the vines, allowing for idyllic bud break, balanced flowering, even fruit set, and perfect grapes.
The 2013 Quintessa is a deep and thoughtful wine from an exceptional vintage. Dark and rich, this wine expresses harmony between fruit and earth. With supple tannins in balance with lively acidity, this is a wine of depth and richness, balance and purity.
