Just the appearance of the 2018 Quarzo in the glass is impressive. It has a strikingly dark color, dense and opaque. The wine itself is deep, and so are the aromatics, with notes of huckleberry, cocoa, campfire, and s’mores. It is great just to sit and take in the aromas as they open and become more expressive. On the palate, the wine is explosive and rich, delivering black cherry, burnt plum, and chocolate lava cake. The tannins are rustic in the best sense of the word—powerful, natural, rough-hewn and only slightly burnished. Named for the crystals that naturally rise up in the vineyard soils, this wine will shine for decades to come.
