TASTING NOTES

"Such a beautiful and complex nose of rose petals, dark fruit and sandalwood. Full-bodied, juicy and flavorful. A precise linear edge to this runs through the wine. Very fine tannins. Yet this is so powerful. Love it. Drink in 2022 and forward." JamesSuckling.com

"A blend of 76% Merlot and 24% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Quintus has a medium to deep garnet-purple hue, opening with aromas of baked cherries, warm red currants and crushed black plums with touches of cigar box, violets and dark chocolate. Medium-bodied, it sports very finely-grained, plush tannins and remains seamlessly refreshing and elegant in the mouth with a seductively nuanced flavor profile, culminating with wonderful length and depth." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue

"Rich and concentrated, with a wave of ganache out front, followed by warmed plum, fig and blackberry confiture flavors. Shows hints of loam and chalk through the finish, with good integration. Best from 2020 through 2030. 3,250 cases made." Wine Spectator

"The 2015 Quintus offers attractive blackberry, briary and cedar aromas on the nose but it lacks the definition and complexity of some of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well judged acidity, quite smooth in the mouth with a joyful, vivid, savory finish. This is a delightful Saint-Émilion. Enjoy this over the next 10 to 12 years. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Dark and rich on the nose. Big and bold. A bit more chunky and structured than the Dragon, the second wine named after the 6m-high dragon on the property. Not as charming as the second wine at this stage." JancisRobinson.com
