96CG 95WE Quintessa 2007 opens to rich, complex aromas of dark black currant fruit with undertones of raspberry, licorice and spice. On the palate, the wine delivers what the nose promises—power and refinement with a mélange of complex cassis, blackberry, mocha and sandalwood spice flavors. A broad, rich middle palate and a long finish offer a delicate balance of intensity and elegance, full fruit and supple tannins. This vintage will gain complexity in the bottle and age gracefully for a decade or more.
