2018 Quintessence Vineyard Red Wine
This is truly a showcase of all the different sites from our vineyard partner that we work the most with—14 unique blocks in total. This blend is Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc dominant, one, because we love those varietals from Quintessence, and we wanted this blend to stand out in the lineup compared to our Optu, Estate, and Ciel du Cheval vineyard blends. The aroma of this wine isn’t fruit driven like it’s other Quintessence counterparts, however you get amazing green peppercorn-spice and violet from the PV and Cab Franc. On the palate there’s nice dusty Red Mountain tannins, lots of complexity hitting all different parts of the palate—black cherry and fig. Great food pairing wine. Drink now through 2037.
