About

98

"This is really fantastic on the nose with blackberries, blueberries, lavender, and violets. Even sage. Full body plus extremely integrated tannins that are polished and refined. The balance and harmony are phenomenal. Goes on for minutes. Beautiful now but will satisfy for decades."

96 Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"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."
