|2007: 91 Points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate: "The 2007 looks to be one of Quintessa's stronger efforts in a number of years. Dark ruby/purple, with sweet black currant, cherry, and loamy soil notes intermixed with some subtle spice box and background oak, this wine is rich and medium to full-bodied, with round, silky tannins, and an attractive set of aromatics. Very accessible and drinkable now, it should age nicely for 15 or more years."
2007: 90 Points - Steve Tanzer, International Wine Cellars: "Good bright, deep ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of black raspberry, loam and chocolatey oak; liqueur-like but not cooked. Broad, dense and sweet, with lush, ripe black raspberry and chocolate flavors. Finishes with broad, dusty, oak-driven tannins. A bit chunky and very ripe and sweet for this bottling: more classic Napa Valley in style than most past vintages."
