Lot #22. Quintus 2016

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 93-96+ VM.
“One of the real surprises of the vintage, the 2016 Quintus is superb. Creamy and ample on the palate, with striking depth to its dark, fleshy fruit, it possesses exceptional balance. All of the previous vintages have been good, but each of them has lacked something. The 2016 is the first vintage in which I can say Quintus is not missing anything. Now, what remains to be seen is how high this wine can go. The 2016 is exceptionally vivid and nuanced, with seemingly endless layers of fruit that virtually cover the tannins, and a long, sublime finish.” Vinous, Apr 2017
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $140
