AXR – Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 – Napa Valley

The nose is aromatic and offers gourmandise as well as a small elegance. It reveals notes of cocoa, fleshy cassis and juicy Boysenberry combined with woody touches, coffee, nutmeg / spices as well as subtle touches of crunchy wild strawberry (in the background) and slight touches of blueberry (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced, silky and offers a mineral frame, a good tannic structure, concentration, suavity, a slight depthness as well as richness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, cassis and slight touches of crushed fleshy wild strawberry associated with discreet touches of raspberry, wood as well as an imperceptible touch of cocoa, pepper (in the background) and coffee. Tannins are a bit dry, tight and young.
