Conn Creek – Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 – Ava Series – Probst Family Vineyards – Atlas Peak, Napa Valley

The nose is aromatic and offers elegance. It reveals notes of blackberry, black cherry and slight touches of cassis, forest soil associated with slight toasted touches, spices as well as slight / discreet hint of humus and a subtle hint of scrubland (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers finesse, a certain tension as well as a good definition. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, juicy cassis and slight touches of fleshy raspberry, liquorice associated with a discreet hint of mocha, wood as well as an imperceptible hint of forest soil (in the background) and at a very discreet hint of mushroom (in the background). Tannins are a bit firm.
