MORE ON THE WINE
The 2018 Illumination is a complex, sophisticated and vibrant wine. Beautiful tension and fine acidity provides brightness to its creamy texture and flavors of juicy mandarin, guava and wet stone. Minerality prevails through the long and elegant finish.
The 2017 Quintessa is eloquent in its message. The wine is powerfully structured, with an elegance to its tannins, and new layers of complexity that reveal themselves as the wine opens in the glass and as it ages in bottle. The aroma begins with notes of black cherry and cassis, covered by dark chocolate. Notes of thyme and sage interplay with hints cinnamon, cedar and incense. The wine enters with lively acidity that balances gracefully alongside layers of red and black fruit to create a wine of elegance and finesse. Following with savory characters of tar and tobacco, this wine has structure and drive, and a long lingering finish of fine tannin.
