B Cellars – Blend 25 – Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah 2012 – Napa Valley

(70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah) The nose is fruity, relatively powerful and relatively gourmand. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis cream and touches of boysenberry associated with a hint of dark chocolate, espresso, Sichuan pepper as well as a discreet hint of red bell pepper (in the background) and tobacco. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, a bit gourmand and offers fat and a good structure. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry and boysenberry associated with touches of black cherry, plum as well as fine touches of chocolate, licorice, toasted oak, a touch of coconut and a discreet hint of caramelization. Tannins are fine and well-built.
