Beringer – Private Reserve 2013, Cabernet Sauvignon – Napa Valley

The nose is aromatic, elegant and offers a slight richness (but full of elegance). It reveals notes of wild blackberry, cassis and small notes blueberry, wild strawberry associated with touches of licorice, cocoa, smoke, camphor, wood and a very discreet hint of flowers. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, a slight juiciness, a slight acidulous frame, minerality, a beautiful complexity as well as a very slight austerity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cassis, black cherry, blackberry and small notes of small wild berries associated with fine touches of cocoa, Zan, camphor, smoke as well as a discreet hint of tobacco / cedar. Tannins are fine, elegant, numerous and a small firm. Good length and persistence. There are slight hints of almond on the persistence.
