    This sensory journey unfolds with layers of structured tannins and bears the distinctive mineral signature of the Quintessa terroir. As the wine progresses, it culminates in a beautifully structured and polished finish, where balance and a well-integrated evolution showcase its elegance and complexity. Notably, this wine possesses exceptional aging potential, promising to flourish for at least two decades, all while maintaining its exquisite drinkability. Decanter hails it as one of the stars of the challenging 2020 vintage, with its muscular profile, remarkable freshness, and red-toned fruit, intertwined with elegant cedar wood and red-rock minerality. Medium to full-bodied, it offers a captivating tapestry of black fruit flavors, featuring muddled blackberries and juicy plums. The wine's tannin texture is like an iron fist in a velvet glove, initially soft and velvety, ultimately revealing a core of ironclad and dusty minerals. The finish is fresh and lively, sealing its status as one of the most riveting wines of the vintage. It's a wine of balance and finesse, perfect for enjoyment now or in the years to come. The Quintessa team, led by Winemaker Rebekah Wineburg and General Manager Rodrigo Soto, has expertly navigated the challenges of the vintage, creating a wine that stands as a testament to their deep connection with Quintessa's vineyards and their winemaking prowess.
