The 2018 Quintessa is fantastic Cabernet opens to stunning aromas of ripe blackberries and dark currants woven together with violets, graphite, tobacco, sweet spices and hints of dark chocolate that all emerge from the glass. On the palate this possesses a gorgeous full body with beautifully polished tannins and outstanding overall balance. It goes on to impress with its excellent concentration and layers of ripe dark and blue fruits that are framed by a lovely touch of underlying acidity, which provides a wonderful sense of freshness leading up to the seamless finish. Overall, the 2018 is an absolutely sensational wine that beautifully captures the characteristics of this amazing vintage and should go on to evolve for many years to come.
