Tasting Notes

On the nose find blackberry, currant, cedar, black cherry, espresso, leather and fresh rose petal. Silky and supple tannins up front give way to more structured tannins with a round mid-palate, showcasing sumptuous flavors of blackberry pie, crème de cassis, black cherry, rose water, espresso, leather, cocoa nibs and cigar humidor. Balanced acidity combines with lengthy tannins for a lasting finish. The wine will continue to evolve and improve with aging.

Vineyard Notes

Quintessence Vineyard is in the Red Mountain sub-AVA of the Columbia Valley in southeast Washington, where the unique characteristics of the south facing slopes are known to produce big, bold, tannic red wines. Grapes from this region are highly sought after. Quintessence is at 660 to 1,100 feet in elevation. First planted in 2010 with 68 acres, Quintessence has grown to more than 300 acres planted with red wine grapes.

Winemaker Notes

Fermentation took place in stainless steel open top tanks where it was cold soaked prior then punched down twice daily during fermentation. Delestage was performed midway through fermentation, followed by extended maceration on part of the lot to improve texture and balance extraction. Barrel aged 25 months in French oak, 40% new.
