Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Bordeaux blend 2014 Quest ferments exclusively in the 12th century stone lagares, small pools craved on the rock on the property, with malolactic in new French barriques where it matured for some 18 months. It's a silky and spicy red that mixes Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot grapes from their estate vineyards planted in 2003. This wine was already bottled when I visited and tasted at the property but the labels were not ready. The nose is very peppery with an herbal twist and classical aromas of cassis and blackberries with a minty touch, very elegant and subtle. The palate is terribly tasty, with ultra-fine tannins and very good, fresh finish driven by dark spices. Some 11,400 bottles were produced.
