Quintessa Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
Wine SpectatorA potent, distinctive style, with loamy earth and graphite details amid the rich dark berry, licorice and savory herb notes, ending with repeating flavor themes and a foundation of firm, fine-grained tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Carmenère. Drink now through 2032. 9,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateAnother strong effort from Quintessa is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon The Faust. This has an inky blue/purple color and notes of Asian plums, blackcurrants, road tar, and charcoal embers in a deep, wonderfully fruited, rich and savory, lush style. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
