The 2015 Quintessa is a seductive wine beginning with intense black fruits and warm spice and finishing with dense yet silky tannin. Opening with aromas of black cherry and blackcurrant, the wine expands in the glass as notes of clove, bay leaves, and dark chocolate layering on top of crushed rock, graphite and red earth. Fine grained tannin and dense fruit bound togethe by lively acidity and a long finish complete the picture and promise further pleasure in the years to come.
Phenomenal aromas of crushed berries, forest fruit, mushrooms and iron. Medium to full body, with layers of soft and refined tannins that follow through to a beautiful finish. Extremely long and refined. This shows depth and structure with balance and harmony. Hard not to open the bottle now and drink it, but it appears to be closing down now. Needs four to five years to show it all.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Proprietary Red Wine has a very deep purple color and notes of crushed rocks, dusty earth and iron ore over blackcurrants and black cherries, plus hints of tapenade, bay leaves, underbrush and chargrill. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is bursting with densely packed, youthful black fruits, framed by finely grained tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing long and mineral laced. This was tasted as a barrel sample. Range: 94-96
A ripe, fleshy style, with dark currant, fig and blackberry fruit, steeped with sage, tobacco and warm licorice notes. A light alder hint stitches up the finish, showing latent, mineral-tinged grip.
