Notes from the Winemaker:
The 2014 Quintessa is a beautiful wine, offering both early enjoyment and ageability. Dense and dark in color, with inviting aromas of fresh cherry and blackberry layered with notes of violets, graphite, and hints of cedar spice, this wine exudes warmth. Dancing on the tongue with flavors of dark berries, dark chocolate, and savory herbs, the smooth and supple tannin expresses all the hallmarks of an exceptional Quintessa vintage.

Vintage: 2014 was a year when Mother Nature showed us her power and her grace. The third year in a drought cycle and a harvest beginning with a magnitude 6.2 earthquake created drama and awe. In the midst of this, however, we experienced a near perfect growing season with no heat waves and a bountiful harvest that ripened with excellent acidity and flavor. The 2014 Quintessa is a beautiful wine, offering both early enjoyment and ageability. Dense and dark in color, with inviting aromas of fresh cherry and blackberry layered with notes of violets, graphite, and hints of cedar spice, this wine exudes warmth. Dancing on the tongue with flavors of dark berries, dark chocolate, and savory herbs, the smooth and supple tannin expresses all the hallmarks of an exceptional Quintessa vintage.

Ratings & Reviews

97 Points, #51 Top 100 Domestic of 2017 - James Suckling:
"Aromas of spearmint, sweet tobacco, cigars and blackcurrants follow through to a medium to full body, very polished and refined tannins and an intense finish. Extremely fine and long. Savory. Extremely long finish. Biodynamically grown." - (January 27, 2017)

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The three red wines are represented best by the flagship wine, the 2014 Quintessa Proprietary Red from their vineyards in Rutherford. A beautiful floral, black raspberry and blackcurrant nose soars from this dense ruby/purple wine. Medium-bodied, beautifully rich and layered, the emphasis is on discreet yet intense flavors, power allied with elegance, and wonderfully supple, lush tannins. This wine has great balance, purity, and presence on the palate and should evolve beautifully for two decades or more." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (28th Oct 2016)
