WINE PROFILE:
Vintage Notes
The 2017 growing season began with record rainfall through winter which led to a mild spring and deep soil moisture. The growing season began on schedule, with bud break and bloom occurring within the average time frame and resulting in beautiful uniformity across the vineyard. As the year developed, 2017 progressed into a warm growing season, similar to 2013 and 2015. The pace continued at an average rate, with verasion occurring at the end of July.

About the Wine
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.
