More about Huneeus Vitners…

Huneeus Vitners

Vintner Agustin Huneeus has been discovering great vineyards of the world throughout a career in wine spanning five decades and 15 countries.

Agustin and wife Valeria founded the Quintessa estate in the renowned Rutherford District of Napa Valley in 1990 and after years of running global wine companies, established a family portfolio of wines that represent the finest vineyard estates, appellations and wines in both North and South America.

In addition to the Quintessa estate, Agustin's current vineyard and winery projects include Faust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Illumination Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc.

In 2009, the Huneeus family forged a partnership with Joan and Walt Flowers of Flowers Vineyards & Winery, pioneering vintners who in 1989, established two extraordinary vineyards dedicated to world-class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the extreme Sonoma Coast.

Their son Agustin F. Huneeus has worked in the family business for more than 20 years and extends the family tradition as head of the wine portfolio in the US and abroad.

2015 Flowers Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast

This Chardonnay is a wine of distinction, with bright aromas of Meyer lemon peel and orange blossom framed by an herbal note of spearmint and hints of wet stone and shortbread. The elegant, balanced palate is driven by citrus and stone fruit that carryover onto a long finish marked with the distinctive acidity of the Sonoma Coast.

2015 Flowers, Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

Deep garnet hue. Aromas of Bing cherry, raspberry, savory dried herbs, violet and forest floor lift elegantly from the glass. On the palate, layers of blood orange and hibiscus are framed by broad tannins, coastal minerality and brilliant acidity that culminate in a lengthy finish.

2013 Leviathan, California

Leviathan was founded in 2004 by winemaker Andy Erickson, former winemaker of Screaming Eagle Winery. The goal was simple: to create one, unique red wine, drawn from some of the best vineyards in Northern California. The resulting bottling, was born of a passion for blending Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, to create a full bodied wine with a character all of its own. Since then, we have remained true to our goal of producing a rich, distinctly Californian red blend, year after year. Very dark ruby color; smooth, meaty, and lush with intense zest, depth, and acidity.

2015 Faust, Napa Valley

The 2015 vintage of Faust Cabernet is a blend of estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford and mountain sourcing in Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain. Dark juicy fruit combine with nuanced spice notes and balanced acidity.

2014 Quintessa, Rutherford, Napa Valley

The 2014 Quintessa is a beautiful wine, offering both early enjoyment and ageability. Dense and dark in color, with inviting aromas of fresh cherry and blackberry layered with notes of violets, graphite, and hints of cedar spice, this wine exudes warmth. Dancing on the tongue with flavors of dark berries, dark chocolate, and savory herbs, the smooth and supple tannin expresses all the hallmarks of an exceptional Quintessa vintage.
