The 2017 Quintessa is eloquent in its message. The wine is powerfully structured, with an elegance to its tannins, and new layers of complexity that reveal themselves as the wine opens in the glass and as it ages in bottle. The aroma begins with notes of black cherry and cassis, covered by dark chocolate. Notes of thyme and sage interplay with hints cinnamon, cedar and incense. The wine enters with lively acidity that balances gracefully alongside layers of red and black fruit to create a wine of elegance and finesse. Following with savory characters of tar and tobacco, this wine has structure and drive, and a long lingering finish of fine tannin.

Already bottled, the 2017 Quintessa displays a deep garnet-purple color. The nose needs a little coaxing before it reveals bold, expressive notes of crushed red and black plums, black currant jelly, wild blueberries and kirsch with nuances of camphor, cloves, cedar and lilacs plus a hint of oolong tea. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has beautifully expressed, elegant red and black fruit layers, with a sturdy, grainy frame and plenty of freshness, finishing long and earthy.
