Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Isabel Allende is a Chilean author and one of the people the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals would love to drink wine and giggle with. Isabel loves red wine and one of her friends is Agustin Huneeus, a Chilean who owns Quintessa in Napa Valley. The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals don't usually buy the wine in the locked cabinet at the LCBO (in fact this was a first for us) but we figured Quintessa would be Isabel Allende with two degrees of separation.
As Isabel says, "Nice people with common sense do not make interesting characters. They only make good former spouses." Quintessa 2006 is an interesting character with larger-than-life qualities that is well worth becoming intimately acquainted with.
p.s. Quintessa doesn't say who she is--she'll only divulge that she expresses the uniqueness of her estate rather than specific varietal characteristics. The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals wish we had Natalie with us to tell us who Quintessa is...

Dark fruit aromas integrated with a fair amount of oak and hints of cocoa, reminiscent of the acclaimed Rutherford
