QUINTESSA 2011 PROPRIETARY RED ESTATE RUTHERFORD 750mL

Proprietor Augustin Hunneus and his wife Valeria found, and managed to acquire one of the most coveted pieces of land in the Napa Valley: a 280 acre of virgin ground in the heart of the Rutherford appellation. While many people and companies had tried to purchase it over the years, only his wife was successful. While one could argue which is the best appellation in Napa Valley, there is no question that this is a fantastic estate. Since its inception, they have acted as stewards of the land and been at the forefront of conservation employing the use of organic and biodynamic farming practices. Biodynamics includes timing key activities such as planting, pruning and harvesting to the lunar cycle, all the while using bio-organisms to maintain the land; it doesn't get much greener than this. No pesticides or chemical are used.

An inviting nose of fresh cherries, currants, and red plum accentuate the complex aromatics of crushed wet rock, sandalwood, and clove. A bright and silky entry is immediately accompanied by a vibrantly layered, juicy core, presenting beautiful elegance to this wine. The finish is lingering yet focused, showing striking definition, balance, and finesse.
