The top-rated Quest yet on CellarTracker.
In fact, it rates even higher than the $65 Austin Hope Cabernet in this vintage – the #7 Wine of the Year!
Quest is a new wine that aims to express the increasingly recognized potential and excitement of Paso Robles. It is a Cabernet-based blend that showcases the luscious softness and depth produced in our mountainous, oak-studded, maritime-influenced home. Cabernet thrives in Paso’s semi-arid, rocky soils, and this wine is fruit-forward, with a toasty vanilla finish and grippy tannins. Quest has been aged in American oak barrels, yet displays an inherent softness. It reflects the region’s richly diverse terrain, where hidden pockets of exceptional vineyards account for its unique character.
The most recent release of our Quest blend displays a beautiful creamy vanilla nose with hints of sweet mint and coco. These aromas continue through the palette and evolve into rich flavors of black berry, dark chocolate, fresh tobacco and slight herbaceous accent. As the flavor evolves bright acidity coats the palette and soft supple tannins create rich integrated finish.
This is also the first Quest to be made entirely from Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
