Quintessa Rutherford 750ml

2009 Quintessa Rutherford Bordeaux Blend Biodynamic viticulture and a top-notch winemaking facility realize the fine Rutherford terroir of this great Napa estate. Minimal grape handling in their gravity-flow facility with native yeast fermentation make the blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot that was aged for 20 months in 85% new French oak. From winemaker Charles Thomas: "A fresh floral, violet aroma mingles with plum and currant in the nose. On entry, the wine is supple with pleasing richness and density that leads through the midpalate. Warm clove spice, sassafras and a touch of vanilla complement nuances of toast to deliver a complex mix of flavors and texture in the mouth. The wine finishes long and satisfying with dark berry fruits, cassis and chocolate
