Meet the 2013 Quintessa!

We want to introduce you to a very special wine from Napa Valley!

The 2013 Quintessa is a deep and thoughtful wine from an exceptional vintage. Dark and rich in color with aromas of bright cherry, blackberry, blueberry, cedar spice, fresh herbs and spring flowers this wine expresses harmony between fruit and earth.

The blend spent 21 months in 100% French oak (85% of which were new)! The varietals in this wine:

  • Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Merot
  • Cabernet Franc
  • Petit Verdot
  • Carmenere

Quintessa is for the wine lover. Store it in your cellar, purchase it as a gift or impress your friends!

Robert Parker: 96 Points!

James Suckling: 98 points!

$174 per bottle. Only two places in southwest Ohio carry this wine!

A few well regarded reviews:

  "The Proprietary Red Wine has always been good, but I think they have re-positioned themselves at a much higher pinnacle with the 2013. This is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend but has important component parts such as Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot from their gorgeous vineyards just off the Silverado Trail in Rutherford. The wine has a dense bluish/purple color and a beautiful nose of black raspberries, blueberries, lead pencil shavings, and touches of oak and spring flowers. The complexity of the fragrance is followed by a wine with terrific body, stunning purity, wonderful balance, and great depth and richness. This is certainly the most profound Quintessa made to date and should evolve gracefully for at least 20-25 years." ~ Robert Parker | 96 points!

  "This is really fantastic on the nose with blackberry, blueberry, lavender, and violets. Even sage. Full body plus extremely integrated tannins that are polished and refined. The balance and harmony is phenomenal. Goes on for minutes. Beautiful now but will satisfy for decades." ~ James Suckling | 98 points!

  “2013 is the second in a string of vintages that have set new levels of quality and consistency for Napa Valley cabernet-based wines. Quintessa 2013 again offers concentration and longevity, but with a more immediate lushness that makes the wine seductive in its youth. This will be another legendary vintage for Quintessa.” ~ Larry Stone, Master Sommelier
