2007 Quintessa Rutherford Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1059500 96 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark There is a sense of sophistication and well-managed ripeness that seem a constant in the best Cabernets of the vintage, and both are apparent in this complex and very well-crafted wine. A nice splash of sweet oak highlights the very keen curranty fruit in its aromas and continues on as a sympathetic partner to themes of cassis and black cherries in the wine's lengthy and beautifully proportioned flavors. Ageworthy by dint of its balance rather than for forbidding astringency, this is one to hide away for at least a half dozen years and more. *Three Stars* Inner quote mark (12/2010)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A very fine Cab from the estate, which is in the north-central part of the Rutherford appellation. Judging from the tannins, it’s too youthful to drink now, with a tight, astringent mouthfeel and fleshy, unintegrated oak. But the flavors are extraordinary. They flood the mouth with the essence of Cabernet, with ripe blackberries, black currants, raspberries and mocha, and the spicy finish lasts for a full minute. *Top 100 Cellar Selections 2010* Inner quote mark (6/2010)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 looks to be one of Quintessa's stronger efforts in a number of years. Dark ruby/purple, with sweet black currant, cherry, and loamy soil notes intermixed with some subtle spice box and background oak, this wine is rich and medium to full-bodied, with round, silky tannins, and an attractive set of aromatics. Very accessible and drinkable now, it should age nicely for 15 or more years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2009)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good bright, deep ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of black raspberry, loam and chocolatey oak; liqueur-like but not cooked. Broad, dense and sweet, with lush, ripe black raspberry and chocolate flavors. Finishes with broad, dusty, oak-driven tannins. A bit chunky and very ripe and sweet for this bottling: more classic Napa Valley in style than most past vintages. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2010)
