The 2019 Quintessa offers nuance, depth, and great persistence. A complex of flower, forest, fruit, and earth notes harmonize with fine-grained tannin and vibrant acidity. It is a wine of precision as well as transparency. The 2019 Quintessa will drink well now for those that prefer a youthful expression but will also last in cellar for at least another twenty years for those who enjoy the complexities of age.
