2013 Quintessa Rutherford Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1267897 98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is really fantastic on the nose with blackberry, blueberry, lavender, and violets. Even sage. Full body plus extremely integrated tannins that are polished and refined. The balance and harmony is phenomenal. Goes on for minutes. Beautiful now but will satisfy for decades. Inner quote mark (5/2016)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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 … (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

For those looking for true premium wines from California, the 2013 Quintessa should certainly be on your list. The nose is highly perfumed with notes of anise, dark berries, and elegant oak spices. The dark, seductive fruit shows very smooth and concentrated right off the bat. Though the wine has excellent structure which should allow it to age beautifully, it is still approachable young. There is really nothing lacking here: elegance, weight, depth, structure, fruit and earth combine beautifully and bring out the true potential of premium California reds.

Structure, grip, texture, gorgeous concentration and extraction to the lush and generous fruit. This wine can be approached now, or will go and go for years to come for the patient.
