93 points "Barrel Tasting - Rich, dense and opulent, with plush black cherry, plum and currant flavors that are sharply focused. Long, saturated aftertaste." Best 2005-2014

"The 2002 Proprietary Red Wine boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as lovely scents of flowers, plums, black currants, and notions of cherries, earthy/loamy soil, and tobacco leaf. Clearly the richest Quintessa to date, it is medium to full-bodied, with a seamless integration of wood, tannin, and acidity. Drink: Now-2014." Best 2005-2014

4 stars "Deep red-purple color and an attractive nose of berries and spices. On the palate, dense, very smooth, well balanced, with vanilla notes and a lively finish."
