1994 Quintessa Proprietary

Quintessa Estate is a Napa Valley wine producer, located in the Rutherford AVA (American Viticultural Area). It produces just one wine from its 280 acre estate, a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant blend that is consistently met with high acclaim.  

The estate's founders, Agustin and Valeria Huneeus, have sought to produce one wine that expresses the terroir of the property each vintage. As a result, while always Cabernet Sauvignon-based, Quintessa's final blend is never exactly the same. While Cabernet Sauvignon dominates, there are also plantings of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Carmenere on the estate property. The property's hills, lake and river contribute different mesoclimates, and there are several different types of soil. The 26 separate vineyard blocks are all vinified separately, and then the final blend is decided before bottling each vintage.

Wine Spectator

Wine Spectator WS91 - 1994 Quintessa Proprietary Red Rich, supple and forward, this drinks well now but is worthy of cellaring. The core of currant, anise, cedar, vanilla and spice flavors are smooth and polished, as are the tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. 500 cases made.
