Robert Parker writes, “The palate is bursting with densely packed, youthful black fruits, framed by finely grained tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing long.”

WINE PROFILE:
The 2015 season began beautifully, with ample rains a welcome sight after three years of drought. Warm late winter temperatures prompted an early budbreak and ultimately one of the earliest harvests on record for Quintessa. Overall, yields were low with outstanding quality as we began harvest in the early morning of September 2nd. Harvest continued at a fast pace, completing on September 30th. A whirlwind of activity that produced a classic Quintessa vintage of opulence, texture, and length. Truly a collector’s vintage for its low yields and exceptional quality, the 2015 Quintessa will age gracefully for many years.
