Quintessa 2012 Napa Valley Red Blend, Rutherford, Hlf. Btl. 375ml
Half-Bottle, 375ml

The flagship wine of the Huneeus Family of Napa Valley, Quintessa is a Meritage style blended red wine from estate vineyards in the Rutherford Bench district. Each year, it is a blend that can include some or all of the five varietals grown on the estate: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Carmenere. Fruit from each component block of Quintessa is harvested, sorted, then gravity fed into either oak or stainless steel fermentation tanks. Once fermentation and maceration are complete, each block of wine is aged separately for up to two years in French oak barrels. After aging, the components are brought together and the final blend is created. This 2012 just received a score of 96 points from James Suckling who said " Purity of blackberry, black currant and hints of toasted oak. Full body, yet refined and very elegant. The tannins are extremely polished and beautiful. It's so beautiful to drink now. Goes on for minutes. From biodynamically grown grapes. Hard not to drink now but will improve with age." Limited!
