Cardinale – Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 – Napa Valley

The nose is elegant and offers power, definition and intensity but full of elegance. It reveals notes of ripe blackberry, fleshy blue fruits and small notes of violet, cornflower as well as touches of fleshy strawberry, fine hints of Sichuan pepper and an imperceptible hint of vanilla. The mouth is fruity, fresh, well-balanced and offers a juicy frame, a good definition and gourmandize, tension as well as an acidulous frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy cassis, Boysen berry and small notes of violet associated with fine touches of crunchy wild raspberry, juicy/ripe redcurrant as well as very fine hints of graphite, incense and chocolate. Tannins are elegant, fine and precise. A discreet chew on the persistence.
