2017 Quintessence Vineyard Red Wine
Quintessence Vineyard Red Wine debuts in the 2017 vintage and gives us everything we love from this vineyard: earthiness and extreme concentration, bold flavors, and chewy, supple tannins. “This is the first time we’ve made this blend, but it’s different in the composition than some of our other blends,” Charlie says. “It’s fun and a little bit unique…and it has that delicious factor.” It is Petit Verdot dominant, showcasing a tannic structure that is present without being overpowering. The Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc contribute classic blue fruit tones and a floral characteristic in the aromas, backed by wild berries and wet rock notes on the palate. Drink now through 2025.
