94pointsQuintessa 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford)

Cellar Selection

This wonderfully rich young wine is enormously powerful in blackberry preserves, crème brûlée, mocha and cassis flavors. There's lots of new oak, but it's well integrated, and the tannins are softly gentle, yet ripe and complex. Almost feminine in its opulence, the wine is beautiful now, but has the balance to hold and even improve for many years. Drink now–2020.
