  • Product Description

    Please join Bern’s Fine Wines & Spirits on Wednesday, January 22nd from 6:30-8pm for an exclusive and highly limited engagement with Rebekah Wineburg, Winemaker for Quintessa.

    Learn first-hand how Agustin and Valeria Huneeus established Quintessa in 1990 to be developed into one of the great wine estates of the world. Valeria guided the 280-acre Rutherford vineyard with utmost care for the soil and environment with a commitment to biodynamic and organic farming. The vineyard’s micro-climates, soils, elevations, and exposures make this one of the most diverse and well-known estates in Napa Valley.

    Cheese and Charcuterie curated from Haven will be paired with the wines.

    Featured Wines

    Quintessa Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford Napa Valley 2016

    The 2016 Proprietary Red Wine is blended of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Carménère, with all fruit coming from the Quintessa estate, and it aged for 20 months in 73% new French oak. Very deep purple-black in color, it comes bounding out of the glass like a pedigree pup with exuberant notions of crème de cassis, warm blueberries and black cherries with hints of redcurrants, kirsch, candied violets, crushed rocks, cigar box and fallen leaves plus a waft of truffles. Full, rich and beautifully laced with layers of floral notes and fragrant earth, the profound black and blue fruits build slowly in the mouth, achieving great energy and depth with a beautiful velvety frame, finishing long and perfumed.

    Illumination Sauvignon Blanc, North Coast, California 2017

    The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Illumination comes from the cooler Coombsville and Bennet Valley AVAs, with a bit from the Quintessa estate. Made up of 53% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Sauvignon Musqué clone and 7% Sémillon, it springs from the glass with vibrant lemon curd, white peaches, orange blossom and lime leaves scents with hints of wild thyme, chalk dust and yuzu zest. Medium-bodied and wonderfully elegant, it delivers vivacious citrus and gentle herbs layers with a racy backbone and long mineral-laced finish.                                    Rating: 91 Robert Parker
