Alpha Omega – Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 – Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard – St. Helena – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, well-balanced, tight, mineral and offers a beautiful concentration (but full of balance). It reveals notes of menthol, and slight notes of flowers, blackberries associated with slight touches of fresh cassis, flowers, minerality as well as a touch of mocha and a subtle hint of leather (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a slight mineral frame, juiciness, a beautiful finesse as well as a beautiful guideline. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed blackberry, juicy cassis and slight touches of Gariguette strawberry associated with wood, liquorice hints, subtle touches of almond (in the background) as well as imperceptible / discreet touches of coffee (in the background). Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length.
