The 2015 Quintessa is a seductive wine beginning with intense black fruits and warm spice and finishing with dense yet silky tannin. Opening with aromas of black cherry and blackcurrant, the wine expands in the glass as notes of clove, bay leaves, and dark chocolate layering on top of crushed rock, graphite and red earth. Fine grained tannin and dense fruit bound together by lively acidity and a long finish complete the picture and promise further pleasure in the years to come.
