Medium to full-bodied and explosively fruity, this is a lovely, hedonistic, seriously endowed red to drink over the next 3-4 years.

These offerings, which are the products of Quintessa’s Huneus family, are interesting wines, especially the proprietary blends. I hope consumers embrace these blends as they give winemakers lots of different options. Even more important, they are a lot of fun to taste"~RP


"The wine has a deep ruby red hue that is framed in rich crimson. Aromas of black cherry and plum, surrounded by roasted coffee beans and vanillin oak accents. The entry is powerful and lush with flavors of bing cherry, blueberry and cocoa. Soft and velvety tannins round out the finish making this wine approachable and inviting."~Winemaker Notes
