TASTING NOTES

"This is so beautifully integrated already with dark, stony minerals, slate and graphite, as well as a swathe of ripe blackberries and dark, spicy plums. The palate starts out quite tight and maintains a long, linear shape that pushes deeper and wider into the finish. Regal and velvety on the surface. Profoundly fine and long below. Freshens as it goes, too. Superb. Try from 2023." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2016 Quintus is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. It has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and features a quiet intensity of chocolate-covered cherries, warm mulberries and plum preserves scents with underlying hints of dried lavender, star anise and potpourri. Medium-bodied, the palate is packed with perfumed black fruit layers, framed by seductively plush tannins and great freshness and finishing with fantastic length." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2016 Quintus is endowed with a vivid bouquet of red cherries, raspberry preserve, orange zest and touches of blue fruit that become more evident with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine bead of acidity. Rounded and supple in the mouth, revealing succulent red cherry and strawberry notes toward the caressing finish. Excellent." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"The 2016 Quintus is powerful and fleshy in the glass, with a good bit of textural depth and overall radiance. Soft, plush and open-knit, the 2016 will drink well with minimal cellaring,. While certainly a very good wine, and maybe a bit more than that, I expected more." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Lush and inviting at first, with tasty raspberry, cassis and plum preserve flavors gliding through, this gains elegance as it moves along, adding light apple wood, floral and tobacco lines. A pretty mineral echo adds length and cut. Pure and stylish. Drink now through 2021. 4,800 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Dark purplish crimson. Silky and appetising and now it's getting really good! Fresh and zesty. Polished and very successful in this sixth vintage. Appetising and sophisticated. Croquant. Long. Spicy." JancisRobinson.com
