2019 Far Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Fission
2019 Far Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Fission A pure mountain 2019 wine, with a dark depth of fruit chiseled by the cool elevation of its two vineyard sites. A wine of texture, with the intensity and sappy concentration we associate with old vines, it builds into powerful tannins that remain refined, almost cloaked by the seductiveness of the fruit and the gently building structure. The name Fission was ultimately chosen to reference the textural and mineral characteristics that the unique volcanic soil brings to this wine.
In April 2004, Michael Quinttus founded VINTUS based on his desire to develop a focused portfolio of exceptional, family-owned, estate-based producers of hand-crafted wines. Michael was previously a senior executive at Kobrand Corporation, where he managed their wine portfolio. Every visitor to this website knows that wine uniquely enhances the quality of life. One of wine’s most thrilling dimensions is the seemingly endless range of aroma, flavor and texture profiles it offers, depending on vineyard sites, grapes used, climate and vinification. As wine consumers and professionals become more experienced with wine, they relish this diversity and savor new flavor and style experiences.
The wine industry, like other businesses, has experienced progressive consolidation in all its tiers of distribution (producer, wholesaler and retailer/restaurant). In this context, it is the goal of VINTUS to assemble an extraordinary range of “wines of place” produced by passionate personalities driven to extract the maximum expression from their estates. These are visionary leaders that are producing today and tomorrow’s benchmarks, wines that can and deserve to stand out in the market. Our work, with our partners, is to match the passion and rigor of our producers with the sophistication and determination necessary to make an impact in the fine wine industry.
