A wine with wonderful clarity of fruit and firm, creamy and polished tannins. So intense and powerful. Layers of fruit and tannins intertwined. Lovely blackberry, black cherry, cedar and sandalwood.

Lovely blackberry, black cherry, cedar and sandalwood. Mushroom and bark undertones. One of the best from here. Try after 2027.

It has plenty of background oak, yet the texture is brilliant, it's full-bodied, has no hard edges, and delivers just a wonderful sense of purity and elegance. It's the finest vintage to date for this estate. Give bottles 3-4 years and enjoy over the following two decades.

The wine somehow manages to balance elegance with high alcohol as this does perfectly. Sweet, long and intense, with a beautiful purity to all the red fruits, the finish lingers, expands and frankly, just feels great on your palate. The wine was made using 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, 15.2 ABV. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/search-wine-tasting-notes/?szSearch=2018+Quintus+

This wine has a deep purple-black hue and it combines the elegance of 2016 and gourmandise of 2015. It's splendidly aromatic with blueberry, spice and violet notes; the fruit bright and distinct. Concentrated and intense on the palate, the tannins are finely woven, offering a texture that is velvety and smooth, alongside well integrated oak. There is great precision and length. Produced from a yield of 41.1hl/ha.

Full-bodied, rich and voluptuously fruited in the mouth, it counters all that fruit with alluring exotic spice and floral accents, supported by plush tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and fragrant. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Plum, black cherry and cassis notes are seamlessly layered, while a bright mineral streak races underneath them. Finish pulls in subtle floral details while the fruit and minerality meld together. Nice length too. Merlot...   Plum, black cherry and cassis notes are seamlessly layered, while a bright mineral streak races underneath them. Finish pulls in subtle floral details while the fruit and minerality meld together. Nice length too. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2032. – JM
